Parish Religious Education
Our Parish Religious Education Program is meant to supplement the Religious formation your children are already receiving at home. Parents are the first and foremost educators of their children. At St. Francis Borgia, we are assisting parents by teaching their children in grades 1-8 on our Catholic faith.
Why do we have PRE?
Our goal for PRE is simple, we want to support our parents as they raise their children in the Catholic faith.
No religious education program will ever substitute for parents living and teaching their faith at home. However, we realize that this can be daunting, especially if parents don't feel at home in the faith that they were raised in. As a Catholic Community of Faith, we want to give our parishioners the confidence and desire to take every breath for Christ!
PRE serves to put your children in a positive, faith filled environment where they can learn to encounter Jesus Christ and have a relationship with Him. We also want to provide resources for our parents to grow in relationship with Him and come to know the fullness of truth in the Catholic Church.
We need Volunteers!
We are currently in need of volunteer instructors for our PRE program! We need instructors and assistants for our Sunday School, 1st - 4th grade, and 6th-7th grade.
The commitment for Sunday School is 1 hour on Sundays after the 8:00AM Mass.
The commitment for PRE is for one year on Wednesday nights for an hour. No need to prepare your own lessons, but creativity is encouraged!
Safe Environment certification is also required. To become Safe Environment certified, you will need to attend an in person class. Certification is good for six years.

Please prayerfully consider sharing your faith with our students in this way. If you feel called to volunteer, please reach out to the DRE at email@example.com or call the Parish Office at 402-426-3823
