All classes begin in September and end in May.  We offer catechist instructed classes for students in Levels 1 thru Level 7.  Levels 1 thru 5 follow a specific core curriculum which is in compliance with the guidelines and requirements of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia, Office of Catechetical Formation. The curriculum for Levels 6 and 7 is focused on the preparation for the reception of the Sacrament of Confirmation and conforms with the doctrinal framework correlated to the textbooks published by Loyola Press for the Archdiocese of Philadelphia.

Levels 1 thru 6: You are required to select a first and second choice for the day and class. Your second choice must not be the same as your first choice… doing so does not guarantee your selection. Class assignments will be based on the date and time of registration and availability.

*Level 7:  Classes to be held on Sunday Morning (10:00 a.m.-11:30 a.m.) and Tuesday Evening (6:30 p.m.-8:00 p.m.), meeting twice per month.  We anticipate there will be 4 classes with 2 being held in the rectory classrooms and 2 held in the portable classrooms. NOTE: Since this is a new level, on a new day and time…there may be changes necessary to ensure the reasonableness and practicality of conducting these classes.
