Ascension and St. Edmund Religious Education Information

Classes are filling up, so please get your registrations in soon. All sessions are held once a week at Ascension Church.

Traditional Religious Education (TRE):

Classes will begin on Sunday, September 11 and Tuesday, September 13.

 Cathechesis of the Good Shepherd (CGS):

Classes will begin on Sunday, September 11, Tuesday, September 13 and Wednesday, September 14. New families to the Religious Education program will need to provide a Baptismal Certificate for any child that has not been baptized at either Ascension or St. Edmund. We look forward to a wonderful new year and a renewed commitment to helping our families form disciples through our Religious Education Program and their own example of faith lived.

We are in need of adults to help us share the Faith with the children. Please consider joining us as a catechist for any of the faith formation offerings. We will provide you with training and support. In addition to your support, you will receive a reduction on your religious education tuition fees. If interested in becoming a catechist, please reach out to: There is a discount given for catechists/aides who have children in the program.
