Since parents are the primary educators of their children, youngsters always learn first in the home about God. The Diocese of Altoona-Johnstown supports parents as they foster in their children a love of God and an understanding about Jesus Christ and gospel values. One of the ways we offer this support is comprehensive, parish-based religious education programs for youngsters who do not attend Catholic Schools
Every child should have access to programming at least until high school graduation. Many parishes also have educational opportunities for adults. Religious education is a human need that knows no age limit.
