Graded class groups (1st-6th grades) gather Sunday mornings following the 10 am Mass and meet from 11:15 am – 12:15 pm with all major holidays and school breaks observed.  Adult volunteers teach and assist using Pflaum’s Gospel Weeklies curriculum.  Snack is provided by families on a rotating basis.
