Faith Formation registration is held online through Realm in the spring/summer and classes are held during the school year. Students must be 3 years old by September 15 to enroll for the coming year. We are in the process of fully transitioning our children's program to Catechesis of the Good Shepherd. For the 2022-23 school year, we offer

  • Catechesis of the Good Shepherd (CGS) to age 3 through grade 3
  • Traditional Relgious Education to grades 2 through 5

If you have any questions or need to register a child during the school year, contact Rosie at [email protected] or 319-277-3036. 

Homeschool Religious Education is a parent-led option. Families who register for this program will receive the materials at the fall parent meeting.
