PRE & Adult Catechesis

Parish Religious Education (PRE)

Going back as far as the Third Plenary Council of Baltimore in 1884, the bishops of the United States have consistently taught that all parents, working together with the local parish, must provide for the religious education of their children.

Every family that does not enroll their children in Catholic schools (like our own St. Paul School) has a serious obligation to ensure that their children receive formal religious education and catechesis by some other means, and St. Paul's PRE program is here to assist you.

The PRE program runs from September through May (roughly following the school year). Classes for all grade levels from K - 8 meet on Wednesday evenings from 7:00 to 8:15 PM.

Our catechists are volunteers who love sharing the faith with the young people who are the future of the Church. If you love sharing the faith with others, maybe God is calling you to help educate his children.

Fishers of Men

Fishers of Men is a Catholic men's ministry which calls, equips and encourages men through an experience of authentic friendship to become active disciples of Jesus Christ.
Their goal is to awaken in Catholic men a desire for a relationship with Jesus. Their focus is on the The MAN CRISIS in our church.. There are 11 million men in America that were raised Catholic but have left the faith. If a father does not go to church, only one child in 50 (2%) will become a regular worshipper with another 37% worshipping irregularly: 60% will be lost to the Church. Only about 1/3 of Catholic men (36%) say they attend Mass on a weekly basis. A Fishers of Men group is a place where men come together to support, encourage, and hold each other accountable on their spiritual journey.
Join St. Paul's Fishers of Men group every Sunday from 8:45 a.m. to 9:45 a.m. in the Parish Hall. No registration is required and is open to both Catholic and non-Cathoic men. For more information, please join us any Sunday morning.
