Parish Religious Education Program

P.R.E.P.  (Parish Religious Education Program)

St. Francis welcomes you and your family to our PREP initiative where we strive to teach our children the beliefs, practices and traditions of the Roman Catholic Church. We welcome all children from the parish in grades 1st through 8th. Classes are held on Sundays from 9:00 – 10:15 AM in the school building from September to May. We also welcome parents and family members to serve as assistant teachers and volunteers in the program. It is a wonderfully rewarding opportunity to serve God and his children in this way. Please call the parish office (610-433-6102) for more information, or contact our Director of Religious Education directly at

PREP Registration Packets are available in the Parish Office, and on this website or via e-mail from Mrs. Stockdale, DRE.

Registrations can be dropped off at the Parish Office Anytime.
