School of Religion – Grades K-7

St. Paul’s School of Religion 2020-2021 for Grades K-7

School of Religion 2020-2021 has begun!
This year our School of Religion classes are being conducted remotely, with a dedicated volunteer teacher overseeing each grade level. Every teacher has designed her/his instruction to accommodate not only the religious content for that grade but also the needs and concerns of their students and parents during these extraordinary times.

Please contact Sue Ward at with any questions or to arrange a day/time when you can pick up your children's books.

Format for 2020-2021

Classes for K-7 are remote this year, combining at-home instruction (with parental assistance where necessary), overseen by a teacher, and zoom gatherings, scheduled by each teacher.

Grades K-1, 3, 4 will continue using the books, Blest Are We.

Grade 2 will have two books to be studied with parents for the preparation of First Reconciliation (occurring in late fall) and First Eucharist (occurring in May, 2021).

Grade 5 will study the key stories of our Judeo-Christian heritage from the Old Testament. They will receive binders of material instead of books, and other materials to be distributed throughout the year.

Grades 6 & 7 (Youth Group will be a little different this year) will study the life, mission, and teachings of Jesus, as well as grapple with how to apply these standards to some of the contemporary issues challenging them and our entire culture. Bi-weekly zoom meetings will be a part of this instruction.

If you have any difficulties, questions, or concerns, please contact me at or call the office at 585-671-2100 and leave a message with Jodie. She will relay your message to me.

God bless you all, and thank you—you are indeed the most important component of your family’s faith formation experience.
