High School Mass & Class Duties Schedule

The Holyland Catholic Parishes of St. Isidore, St. John the Baptist and Visitation of Blessed Virgin Mary welcome all children from grades 1 through 11 into our Religious Education Programs to learn about their faith and to grow in their relationship to God, through Jesus, with the help of the Holy Spirit.

In addition to creative textbook lessons and prayer services, all grade levels also occasionally gather to celebrate sacraments, participate in large group activities, and hear guest speakers. All students, especially our older youth (Grades 6-11) are also asked to seek out service experiences throughout the year.

First Reconciliation and First Eucharist are celebrated in 2nd Grade. Each initiation sacrament includes family preparation meetings and events. Confirmation is celebrated in 11th Grade and class attendance is required of anyone who wishes to be confirmed (even if enrolled in Catholic schools). In preparation for their sacrament, Confirmation students also attend a special retreat weekend together.
