                                          St. Joseph Parish Religious Prep Education Ministry Goal

​The goal of Saint Joseph's Parish Religious Prep Education Program is to help our children foster a close and loving relationship with God in the tradition of the Catholic Church. We believe that growth in faith is a lifelong journey, undertaken in a faith community that includes their families, their classmates and catechists and the parish community, and guided by the Holy Spirit. Along with their families we wish to teach the children through an active Catechetical learning program that translates into an active faith as a Catholic. Parents are invited to join us in support of our program and guidelines.


Through the parish religious prep program, St. Joseph's Church strives to education and instruct children in faith formation while also helping them grow in their understanding of the faith and of God's role in their lives. All children from kindergarten to eighth grade are welcome to sign up for classes and join in this faith sharing experience.

St. Joe's prep program meets Sundays from 10:30 AM to 12 PM and has classes for grades, K through 6. Parents must enroll their children in classes through registration. The form can be found on this webpage or by contacting the rectory. 


 If classes are to be canceled for any reason, students will be notified. In case of inclement weather please visit the webpage or call 215-646-0494 for a message.

If you have any questions feel free to call the rectory at 215-646-0494 and ask for Suzanne Kuhn or email at
