Religious Education

Education for a Lifetime

Immaculate Conception Parish offers religious education for preschool, grade school, high school, and adult aged individuals. 

Religious Education Program (REP)

Our parish seeks to help all parishioners know Jesus’ love and grow in faith. REP programs strive to offer participants new insights into the message of Jesus, experiences of Christian Community and awaken a call to Gospel service.

St. Mary offers Religious Education in cooperation with St. Charles and St. Joseph parishes.

Students are expected to be enrolled in Religious Education from 1st-11th grade (if not attending a Catholic school). Registration forms are available on all Tri-Parish websites. Forms and payment can go to the church office. Religious Education classes are offered in 4 formats: 

REP Classes: Parents will drop off children for weekly grade-level classes from 9:15-10:15 AM on Sunday mornings at St. Mary campus. Available for grades K-8.  Please contact Margie Robers for more information:

Life Nights: Students grades 6-12th attend twice a month on Sunday nights 6-8 PM at St. Charles.  Confirmation preparation is available during this program.

Family Program: An adult attends with the family on Wednesdays 6:30-7:30 PM at St. Mary Annex. Classes are specifically for students in grades K-5th but the whole family is welcome.

Home School: The family will independently instruct their children with support from church staff. Available for K-12th grades. Grandparents or Godparents can also home school.

NOTE: St. Mary also offers a program for children from age 4 through 2nd grade which takes place during the 8:00am Mass. (This program is not for children under 4.) The children go down to Heim Hall during the readings and return to Mass before the petitions. The purpose is to explain to the children in their own words the readings of the Mass.
