Welcome Back!

We are currently accepting registration for Grades 1st - Confirmation Year I(9th grade) Please contact the office at saintrobertsccd@gmail for more information.

If you would like more information - contact the office at:

First through Fifth Grade

Classes are held in St. Robert's School on Tuesdays, 3:30pm to 4:30pm. Registration information is mailed out during the summer for the new year starting in September. Classes begin mid-September and end mid-May. Please contact the Religious Education Office for more information.

On the first day of classes each child is supplied with a textbook that will be used throughout the year. The first few years of religion classes gives a child the foundation of their growing faith.

First Eucharist and Reconciliation

First and second grade religion classes prepare children for their First Eucharist and Reconciliation. Children must attend both years, in order to be readily prepared for receiving the Sacraments. This has always been a special time for children and their families, bringing much excitement and activities as they learn their prayers and become spiritually aware of our Lord Jesus. Special programs are available for children in grade 3 or higher who have not yet celebrated these sacraments.

Junior High- Grades 6th, 7th, and 8th

Classes for children in grades sixth, seventh, and eighth are held twice a month on Tuesday evenings, 7:00pm - 8:15pm. Students gather in Hennessy Hall for prayer and announcements and then break-up into separate classes for each grade.

Confirmation - Grades 9th and 10th

Year I

9th grade students (or older who have not received Confirmation) are required to attend classes twice a month on Tuesday evenings 7:00pm - 8:30pm. Students are preparing for the Sacrament of Confirmation. They are learning about the commitment of faith and that as young adults; it is their decision to continue the faith journey as participating members in the community. Confirmation is the young adult stating to God, Yes I want to follow your teachings and have your presence in my life.

Year II

10th grade students (who have completed Year I) are required to attend classes on scheduled Sunday afternoons from August through October. (Approximately 4 class sessions) Classes are held Sunday afternoons, 3:30pm - 5:00pm followed by mandatory class attendance at the 5:00pm Mass. Students are also required to attend a Retreat and complete service hours. The Confirmation Ceremony will take place late October or early November.
