Religious Education

CCD Program

Classes for Grades K to 6 are held on Mondays from 6:15 PM to 7:30 PM and for Pre-K and Kindergarten from September to April. Our Religious Education Program is the parish's effort to support and enrich the faith of students that is taught in the home. With the help of parish volunteers we try to exemplify and teach the following:

  • Spirituality & Prayer Life
  • Forms of Worship & Community Prayer
  • Service to Others
  • Basic Knowledge of the Faith, such as The Trinity, Scripture and Sacraments

This year's program starts on September 19, 2016. EOL & St. Sebastian Faith Formation Schedule 2016-17

Registration forms will be mailed to students who have attended in previous years.  Registration forms are also available online.

We are always in need of people to help! To be a catechist (teacher) and/or aide in this ministry there are a few obvious requirements. You have to like working with children. You need to be joyful and positive about sharing your faith. Most catechists are driven by a strong desire to pass on our faith traditions to the next generation. Training is offered for new teachers and the proper clearances are necessary to work with children.

Do you feel a call to work in this ministry? If so, call the Faith Formation Office at (724) 930-8504.

Attention First Grade Parents

All Catholic parents promised on the day of their child's Baptism to raise their child in the Catholic Faith. As your child grows and his/her faith is being formed at home, so, too, should your child be prepared to receive the Sacrament of First Eucharist by attending formal Religious Education in the first grade. Our Parish records for first grade students are limited. If your child is entering the first grade and is not attending a Catholic School, please call the Faith Formation Office so that we may add your child's name to our first grade records and send you registration information concerning the Religious Education Program.
