Adapted Religious Education

The goal of the Adapted Religious Education (ARE) Program is to present the gospel to people with Special Needs and to give them an understanding and appreciation of the Catholic faith, preparation for the sacraments, and life in the Christian community. ARE serves all age groups from elementary school, middle school, high school to adults.
