PREP  (Parish Religious Education Program)

Classes in the OLPH PREP are held for students (Grades 1-6) attending non-Catholic schools. Our mission is to strengthen, supplement, and reinforce the knowledge of the faith and of the love of God that is introduced in the home by the parents. 


Virtual PREP - Fall 2020

Registration is Now Open for our Traditional (Sept.-May) PREP!  To start the school year we will be conducting these classes VIRTUALLYAt this point in time we will not offer an "in person" program as in years past, but that could change during the course of the year.  We will keep you informed. For more information about how to enroll please contact our DRE, Michele Hundermark, at 610-543-5448.

Once you have registered you will receive an email with details about how to logon to the SADLIER CHRIST IN US website. This email will contain separate user names and passwords for parents and children (grades 1-6) within each family unit.  It is important that the students use their own user names to logon and complete each week's assignments as that is the only way the students progress can be measured.  Parent accounts contain additional resources to help them participate in the weekly lessons and to assist in the religious education experience of their children.

Note: 7th Grade Students will use a different specialized curriculum and therefore will not use this Sadlier Virtual Program. For more information please contact our DRE, Michele Hundermark, at 610-543-5448.
