P.R.E.P. Classes for the Partnering Parishes of St. Charles Borromeo, Drexel Hill, and Sacred Heart, Clifton Heights
P.R.E.P. Classes are held on Monday evenings
6:30PM until 7:50PM at our Drexel Hill location
PLEASE NOTE: We are strongly encouraging in-person catechesis this year, especially for children who will receive the Sacraments, as we are seeking to lead our children to a personal relationship with Christ, which is best communicated in-person. We will do all that we can to provide a safe and healthy environment, including cleaning/sanitizing before and after classes; mask wearing by all students, catechists, and staff; social distancing; ventilation; etc.
However, we also recognize that due to the pandemic, there will be some families who would prefer to have their child learn at home, so we will provide that option as well. For children receiving catechesis at home, parental involvement is paramount, to help introduce the children to the community of faith and also to help them with the learning requirements.
The at-home option this year for Non-Sacrament Levels will include the virtual edition of our new textbook series: Sophia Institute for Teachers, as well as periodic interaction with the Coordinator of Religious Education either via video conferencing or in-person.
For Sacramental Levels, there will be some in-person requirements, i.e. interview with the pastor, retreats, rehearsals, and the reception of the Sacraments. However, in place of the regular in-person instruction there will also be an option for online-instruction, either using Sophia Institute Virtual (First Penance and First Holy Communion) or another online platform (Confirmation). Periodic interaction with the Coordinator of Religious Education either via video conferencing or in-person will also be part of the program requirements.
In this ever-changing world, there will be an option for parents to change to and from in-person instruction. However, for Level Two (First Penance and First Holy Communion), this option will be more limited, due to the different catechetical programs being used in-person and at-home.
The P.R.E.P. Tuition/Fee remains the same as previous years: [$140.00 for one child – $200.00 for two children $250.00 for three or more children]

A Short Bio of Sr. Theresa Marie Moore, PVMI
Director of Religious Education (PREP)
Peace of Christ be with you! My name is Sister Theresa Marie Moore. I am a member of the Parish Visitors of Mary Immaculate (PVMI) residing at Sacred Heart Convent and I will begin serving this fall as Director of Religious Education here at Sacred Heart and St. Charles Borromeo parishes. After growing up in Michigan and working for nine years as a Civil Engineer, Jesus called me to be His spouse, sharing in His mission to bring all souls to know and accept His redeeming love as a PVMI.
After my initial formation at our Motherhouse in Monroe, NY, my mission assignments have included:
Holy Family Parish, Queens, NY – family visitation and parish ministry
St. Therese Classical Academy, Chester, NY – religion teacher
Holy Spirit and St. Peter the Apostle, New Castle, DE – religion teacher, sacramental prep, Religious Education
I look forward to bringing my varied parish experiences to serve this Community, joining the PREP team in living our faith and inviting families to walk more closely with God. You are all in my prayers, and I count on your prayers in this spiritual endeavor.
Holy Family of Nazareth, intercede for all families.
