Parish Religious Education Classes (RE) are offered for students in grades Kindergarten – grade 10 who do not receive Catholic religious education during their normal school day. Classes are held on Sunday mornings from 9:40-10:20 a.m. for grades Kindergarten – grade 7, and on Wednesday evenings from 7:00-8:15 p.m. for grades 8-10. First Reconciliation and First Communion consists of a two-year preparation requirement. Attendance in our first grade parish religious education classes or enrollment at St. John Neumann School is a necessary component to the preparation and reception of the two sacraments in the second grade. Please plan to register your first grade child in our religious education classes (if they do not attend St. John Neumann School) if you intend for them to receive their First Reconciliation and First Communion in the second grade.
Confirmation is celebrated in grade 11 or 12. Consistent attendance in yearly religious education classes through enrollment in the parish religious education program or Knoxville Catholic High School is a necessary component to the reception of the sacrament. It is expected that students will have completed 10th grade religion classes before beginning preparation for the sacrament of Confirmation.
Please plan to register your children for RE if they do not receive Catholic religious education during their normal school day. Classes will begin after Labor Day. Contact Marilyn Derbyshire at 777-4312 or firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions.

A TALK FOR PARENTS: Finding God Amidst the Pots and Pans
Sunday, Feb. 23 from 9:35 – 10:20 am
OR Wednesday, Feb. 26 from 7:00 – 8:15 pm at the SJNS library
Come and listen to experienced parents, Mark and Rosemary Calvert, as they present “Finding God amidst the pots and pans”. The talk is based on the teachings of St. Theresa of Avila, who although best known for her mystical experiences of God, renders a great teaching for the ordinary family lives “in the world”. All parents and care-givers are welcome. To RSVP or if you will need childcare, please contact Sr. Elizabeth at email@example.com or call (865) 966-4540.
