RELIGIOUS EDUCATION - 2016 -2017 - We have sent out the registration packet to all children in our database who received instruction last year. Religious education for public school students will be held on Sunday's during the school year. It provides the support, education and faith development for our children in public schools from 1st through 8th grade. Classes are held in St. Clare/St. Paul School Main Campus (Penn Ave., Scranton). Students in grades 1-8 will meet from 9:00 a.m. - 10:00 a.m.
A registration mailing is sent to all prospective students in our database at the end of each summer. Volunteers are the core of our program.
