“The faith is perhaps the most beautiful heritage that we can give because it makes you grow. To help children, boys and girls, young men, women, and adults to know and to love the Lord ever more is one of the most beautiful educational adventures, for it comprises the Church!” -Pope Francis

The Religious Education Program of Our Lady of Good Counsel and Saint Bernadette works in partnership with parents in order to assist them in living their vocations as educators of their children. This program should merely complement, not replace, the catechesis children receive in the home. The Religious Education Program assists parents in their God-given role as educators of the faith.
Parents whose children do not attend Catholic schools are strongly encouraged to enroll their children in REP. Instructions are necessary for public school children to receive the sacraments of Penance and Reconciliation, Holy Eucharist, and Confirmation.
