This program is for young parishioners who are not currently attending one of our affiliated Catholic elementary schools. This program provides these students an opportunity to study the Catholic faith and if applicable, prepare for sacraments. The program is managed by Arden Ouellette, Lay Parish Minister.
Children participating in this program can also prepare and receive the sacraments of First Reconciliation, First Holy Communion and Confirmation.
Using materials provided by the Diocese of Hamilton, programs are matched to each student's age, grade and catechesis experience. Participants must be baptized Roman Catholic; if your child is not yet baptized please contact the parish to arrange for Baptism and we will work to match the appropriate program to your child's needs and circumstances.
We ask that participants also be registered members of St. Paul the Apostle. Parish Registration information is available on the About Our Parish page of this website.

Due to Covid19 we are still in the planning stages for the particulars concerning the management of the program in regards to distribution of program materials, submission of completed work as well as sacramental preparation for those preparing for First Communion and Confirmation. Details will be communicated as soon as they are finalized. Please note however that registration is being accepted now.
