St. Michael's program of religious education prepares children and youth to receive the Sacraments of First Reconciliation, First Communion, and Confirmation to be in full communion with the Catholic Church. Adult volunteers and AU student ministry teams work with children and youth in all of our programs. All volunteers undergo training and background checks in order to participate in ministry for the welfare and protection of our students.
In addition to religious education and sacramental prepartion, the Parish Catechetical Leader plans and organizes the Children's Liturgy of the Word, the Advent family workshop, youth service projects, Easter celebrations and a week-long summer Bible Camp program.
