  • Talk to the priest and ask them to direct you to the person who runs it. Theyll meet with you and the child and let you know when it is right to start them.

  • Here we start at age 3 with the Catechist of the Good Shepard program. There should be a RE director at your church. Just call the office they'll help you.
