St. Nicholas’ New Evangelization offers a Religious Education program for youth in grades 1 through 11.
The Church teaches that the primary teachers of children are the child’s parents. The Parish is given the task of assisting parents in teaching the faith to their children. The mission of the New Evangelization Team, including the volunteer catechists, is to assist the parents in teaching about our Catholic faith and passing this faith on to the children who attend the programs and activities offered. As part of the parish RE program, your child will experience ways to know, love, and serve our Lord and the Church within the 30 hours they attend.

The Elementary Program for our children takes place on the 1st and 3rd Wednesday of the month from 5:30pm-6:45pm. The 2nd and 4th Wednesday of the month will be a home based program.
