WELCOME to the Parish Catechetical Office. Here our task is to provide opportunities for growth in faith and knowledge for everyone in our parish family. Primarily this is done through classes offered for the children of the parish who do not attend parochial school and through events and experiences that involve the entire family. Additionally, we look to provide meaningful retreats, missions, and activities designed for a particular group, need or interest within the parish.

PREP STUDENT CLASSES: Families seeking religious education and sacramental preparation for their children may choose from two (2) options:

SCHOOL YEAR- We are in the process of revising our School Year PREP for the 2023-2024 school year. Look for upcoming information in the bulletin or contact Donnamarie Sexton ext. 218

SUMMER INTENSIVE CLASSES- Classes are held daily from 8:30 a.m. to noon, they will always begin the last Monday of July and proceed Monday-Friday for two weeks.  Currently, these classes are held at Wildwood Catholic Academy, 1500 Central Ave., North Wildwood. Please note additional Diocesan requirements.

SACRAMENTAL PREPARATION: Preparation to receive First Reconciliation, First Eucharist, and/or Confirmation requires a two-year commitment to PREP classes as well as classes specially designed to strengthen the understanding of the sacraments. Attendance at Retreats, Service Projects and Parent meetings is also required.


Students are required to practice their faith throughout the year not just in the classroom. To show they are meeting this requirement they will need to do at least 6 Faith-Filled Events and fill out the reflection form. More information can be found under the Faith-Filled Events under PREP.


FOR MORE INFORMATION, PLEASE CALL THE OFFICE 522-2709- EXT 218. Once form is submitted Donnamarie Sexton will contact you. If you have any questions please email:
