Religious Education

Welcome families!

The Sacred Heart Religious Education program serves more than 700 students in multiple levels. The teachers of the program are volunteers commissioned by the parish to partner with parents in educating children in Catholic teaching faithful to the Magisterium.

Registration for classes normally begins in spring for the upcoming year; classes meet on a weekly basis beginning late August.  For the 2020-2021 class year, we anticipate beginning our registration process in July.  Please call the Religious Education Office with questions: (540) 662-2651.

In order to better serve your children, most of our teachers have become certified through a diocesan-sponsored Master Catechist program. This is an extensive, two-year program that provides an excellent grounding in the foundations of our Catholic faith, and will ultimately enable our teachers to proficiently provide a professional level of education to all students.
