Elementary SOR evangelizes and catechizes children in 1st-6th Grade. The Elementary SOR Program follows the school year, running from September - May.
Parents as Primary Catechists
Weekly Home Lessons:
Weekly home lessons are at the heart of our program. Children complete ~½-hour weekly home lessons using Ignatius Press's Faith & Life series presented through My Catholic Faith Delivered (MCFD). These lessons are a vital tool in helping to establish parents as their child’s primary catechists.
Monthly Classes/Parent Meetings
Periodic Family Gatherings
We meet in the Parish Hall or Church periodically for Family Gatherings. Families attend together, as there is no child supervision on this evening. The same event will be offered that given Monday and Wednesday. While it is generally most convenient for families to attend on their given SOR evening, families are welcome to attend either session. As you are attending with your children, you are supervising them, and therefore, there are no Virtus issues.

- Lego Minifigures
- Hula Hoops (Clean ones only, please.)
Prince of Peace respects the institutions of family and parish. Religious education, including sacramental preparation, should take place primarily within one's family, under the umbrella of one's home parish.
