Ascension provides religious education for children in grades Pre-K (4 years and older)-8 who attend either public school or non-Catholic private school.  The parish schedules required events and sessions for those, including parishioners who attend Catholic school, who are preparing to receive the sacraments of First Penance, First Holy Communion, and Confirmation.  If you are new to the parish or if you have not participated in religious education before, we invite you to explore this page or to call the parish to find out more about opportunities for your family.  For those who are regular participants in our program, welcome back.
