Meriden Roman Catholic Special Religious Education Program
The Religious Education program provides formal religious instruction for children in grades K through 10 who attend public schools. The programs are in accord with the Catechism of the Catholic Church, the National Catechetical Directory and other documents published by the Bishops of the United States. This instruction provides opportunities to learn about God, to celebrate the sacraments together, to develop a caring attitude for the people in our neighborhoods and the world, and to build community within the parish. Opportunities for Community Service Hours are available in this regard.
