2020 – 2021 Religious Education Program

Registration is open for the 2020-2021 year. Registration is open through September 18th.
This year, due to COVID-19, our program will look a little different. Below are important details about the upcoming school year at Holy Name. Please reach out if you have any questions at (303) 437-8104 or

Online registration will open to parishioners for our Religious Ed Program from September 7 through September 18.

The cost is: $70 for the first child and $50 per student for two children or more.
Catechesis of the Good Shepherd is $25 per student. A cap of $220/family will be in place.
We are planning to start in-person classes on Sunday, October 4. This year, classes will be limited in size and held on only two Sundays a month. Classes will be led by catechists in a classroom setting, and reinforced by parents at home. We will be providing materials for parents to use at home, and scheduling parent sessions each semester. It is also important to note that catechists and students will be required to wear a mask in the classroom. We are following guidance from the Archdiocese as well as state and local governments as we implement best practices for our Religious Education Program this school year. RE Programs include:
Catechesis of the Good Shepherd (CGS): Pre-k – Kindergarten

There will be no in-person classes for Catechisis of the Good Shepherd (CGS) in the 2020-2021 school year. We are opening this school year to digital content only. Julianne Miles will schedule presentations for parents, along with supporting materials for use at home.

Religious education classes:
One year of religious education is required before entering into the Sacramental Preparation Program. This can be obtained by enrolling in a class at Holy Name, attending a class at another Catholic parish or home schooling using a Catholic based curriculum.
Classes will meet on the 1st and 3rd Sundays of the month from 9:10 – 10:20 a.m. in the upper level of the St. Agnes Center.
Sacramental preparation program:

Classes are offered for children entering 2nd through 6th grade who have already been baptized Catholic. This 2-year Fall through Spring Program prepares children for three Sacraments: Reconciliation, Confirmation and the Eucharist. 

  • Year 1: prepares children for the reception of First Reconciliation 
  • Year 2: prepares children for the reception of both Confirmation and the Eucharist.

If you have an older child (seventh grade and older) who still needs to receive their sacraments, please contact the RE office directly.
Classes will meet on the 1st and 3rd Sundays of the month from 9:10 – 10:20 a.m. in the upper level of the St, Agnes Center. 

Youth faith formation:

For children in grades 4 – 6 who have received their sacraments of Confirmation and the Eucharist. Children will be divided into groups of boys and girls and organized by grade level. These groups offer the opportunity for children to continue to grow in their faith and deepen their love for Christ through prayer, age-appropriate reading and discussion, and activities.
Groups will meet on the 2nd and 4th Sundays of the month from 9:10 – 10:20 a.m. in the upper level of the St. Agnes Center.
