The Office of Religious Education and Family Life(REFL) ministries prepares parents by instilling a strong faith in their children through "Parenting and Faith Formation" and Pre-baptismal classes in the "Rite of Christian Initiation for Children" from infancy to 8th grade. REFL coordinates all the baptismal registrations, classes and ceremonies. REFL provides the necessary preparation of Reconciliation and First Communion, continuing religious education, and classes in the development of active and dynamic parenting programs and retreats. Also, REFL provides preparation for the sacrament of Matrimony through pre-marital classes for couples, and coordinates with all various marriage and family life groups in the parish. REFL invites all community families to visit and participate in this very important life program.
