Catechetical Correspondence Courses
About the Program
These programs are interactive parent-child programs, designed to assist families in the Diocese of Hamilton whose children are enrolled in public or private schools, are homeschooled, or for other reasons unable to attend Catholic Schools. There are programs for every age and stage from Kindergarten through to high school including programs specially designed to assist children preparing for the Sacraments of First Communion and Confirmation.
Our correspondence courses currently reach over 900 children from all over the Diocese — families in the Grey-Bruce, Wellington, Waterloo, Halton and Brant regions as well as in Hamilton.
The Catechesis Office is proud to carry on the important work of the School Sisters of Notre Dame in providing high quality catechesis for children and their families.
