Elementary Religious Education (PREP)

Parents are the first faith educators of their children. To assist parents in this most important mission, St. Aloysius provides three options.

The first option is to attend St. Aloysius' summer Parish Religious Education Program (PREP). These intensive classes take place over two weeks during the month of June, typically ending on the fourth Friday of the month. Students attend classes Monday through Friday for a half day. This schedule affords older students the opportunity to explore ministry opportunities through server, lector, and extraordinary minister training for the weekly Masses. The two-week session is supplemented by additional enrichment days during the remainder of the year. For information, please contact Ann Shackleford (738-1014). DUE TO COVID-19 RESTRICTIONS, ON-SITE CLASSES ARE ONLY OFFERED FOR GRADES 2, 7, AND 8. PARENTS OF STUDENTS IN THOSE GRADES MAY CHOOSE TO SEND THEIR STUDENTS TO ON-SITE CLASSES OR TO CONTINUE THE PREP CLASSES AT HOME. STUDENTS IN GRADES 1, 3, 4, 5, AND 6 WILL CONTINUE PREP CLASSES AT HOME.

The second option is to attend weekly PREP classes at Queen of Peace parish. The classes typically follow the regular school schedule and run from September into May. For information, please contact Laura Fryer or the Queen of Peace parish office (863-4344).

The third option for parents is to homeschool. Information about homeschooling may be obtained on the Archdiocese of Cincinnati website. Parents should notify the parish of their intent to homeschool. Additional interviews may be required prior to sacraments. For additional information, please contact (738-1014).
