Program Information

Pre-K through Grade 5

Pre-K through Grade 5 classes meet on Sunday mornings from 9:45 – 10:45 a.m. and are taught by a team of trained and dedicated catechists. During class, students build upon and deepen their faith relationship with Jesus and grow as members of our OLOS family.  We use the curriculum Blest Are We for grades 1-5, and Stories of God's Love for PreK and Kindergarten, both by the publisher RCL Benziger.  Classes are situated between the 8:45 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. liturgies so that children and their families can attend Mass before or after class.

Please note that students must be 4 years old by September 1 to register for the PreK program and 5 years old by September 1 to register for the Kindergarten program.
