    SCHOOL OF RELIGION

    School of Religion is primarily for children in grades K-8 who are not enrolled in Catholic School, but all children are welcome.

     

    In SOR we provide systematic catechesis for children, formation opportunities for families, and preparation for the Sacraments of Reconciliation, Eucharist and Confirmation. SOR meets Sundays, 9:30-10:45 a.m. from the end of August through the first week of May.

     

    First Reconciliation, First Eucharist and Confirmation are celebrated in the parish. Preparation takes place in SOR and John Paul II School classrooms with additional parent/child meetings at St. Pius X for each Sacrament. First Reconciliation is usually celebrated in the first semester and First Eucharist at the end of April.

     

    Confirmation preparation for all St. Pius X students takes place in grade 8 or above and begins with a parent/student meeting in the Fall and continues with Sunday meetings for students from noon to 2:00 p.m. until Confirmation. Confirmation is scheduled yearly by the Archbishop’s Office and is usually in the spring.

    With questions or to enroll, please contact Kathy O’Bryan at 913-709-1717 or kobryan@spxmission.org.
