About Our Religious Education Programs

SMOY’s Religious Education programs offer a structured approach to support our parents and to reinforce the Christian values that you have introduced at home.

The St. Margaret of York Catholic Church Religious Education Programs assists the parents (the primary catechists) in the faith formation of their children to know, love, and serve Jesus. 

Children are required to have 2 years of religious education to receive a Sacrament. Preparation for Confirmation requires an additional component from our standard religious education programs during the Sacramental year. Any questions or concerns please contact the Parish Office.

All parish children in grades 1-8 are expected to attend one of the following:

  • Family Faith, September - April
  • Sunday Parish Religion Program (PRP), September - April
  • Online Parish Religion Program (PRP)
  • Enrolled in the Parish School

Summer Parish Religion Program (PRP) is not being offered this year

Family Faith

When: 9:30-10:45am on the Thrid Sunday, September 2022 - April 2023

Family Faith brings St. Margaret of York families together once a month to learn about the life of Jesus Christ, His teachings, our Catholic Faith, and helping families pass on a living faith. At home, parents will foster their relationship with Christ and help their children fall in love with Jesus as they journey toward Heaven as a family.

Sunday Parish Religion Program (PRP)

When: Sunday Mornings, September 2022 - April 2023

Sunday Parish Religion Program (PRP) uses the Graded Course of Study established by the Archdiocese of Cincinnati, which encompasses the 7 tasks of catechesis: Prayer, Knowledge of the Faith, Liturgical Life, Moral Formation, Communal Life, Missionary Spirit, and Theology of the Body. Students will have the opportunity to talk about their faith with classmates their own age and with a devoted catechist.

Online Parish Religion Program (PRP)

When: Access to Course Content begins in June 2022

Our Parish Religion Program (PRP) is a flexible program was designed to equip parents to thrive in their natural vocation as the first Catechist and teacher of the faith to their children. The curriculum is Ignatius Press Life In Christ but instead of purchasing the physical books, Ignatius Press has partnered with Our Catholic Faith Delivered which allows for a complete, online approach to home study faith formation.

The students have access to their grade level materials online for a 1 year period and have the ability to complete the coursework at their own pace.  All assessments and prayer exercises are completed through the online platform so that both the Parents and our faith formation office can monitor progress in knowledge of the faith and relationship with Christ.

Questions about our religious education programs or for help deciding which program is right for your children and family please contact our the parish office.
