“To educate means to help the human soul enter into the totality of the real.”

-Luigi Giussani




We at Nativity are honored that you, as parents and primary catechists of your children, are considering us to help with their catechetical formation.  Our role is to assist and support you by helping your children grow in their understanding and application of the Catholic faith. We strive to offer an engaging experience that pushes your children deeper in their knowledge of and love for Christ and His Church.


Nativity offers Religious Education (R.E.) classes for children in pre-K through eighth grade.  We offer three one-hour sessions a week: Tuesdays at 4:30pm or 6:30pm, or Wednesdays at 4:30pm.  Our curriculum is based on the Catechism of the Catholic Church, in conjunction with the diocesan standard, Saints Among Us. Our classes run from September to April, but we are always accepting new registrations for classes that have availability:

Our program would not be possible without the generosity of our volunteer catechists. If you are interested in being a teacher or an aide, please contact Diane Irby. 

high school
teaching team

We encourage high schoolers to deepen their faith through teaching and engaging younger Catholics as a part of our High School Teaching Team.  If you are in high school and would like to be a R.E. teacher or a teacher’s aide, please contact Diane Irby.

catechesis of the good shepherd

In addition to R.E. classes, Nativity offers Catechesis of the Good Shepherd (CGS) for children ages 3-9. CGS offers hands-on, experiential learning intended to develop values of contemplation and enjoyment of God.  If you are interested in learning more, contact Diane Irby.
