Religious Education

Together In Jesus & Mary through the GOSPELS – “The Good News!”

Welcome to St. Mary’s & St. Edward’s Religious Education Program.

Our Program is based on the Sunday readings, teaching that Jesus is the Center of it all. We ask that your family attend the 9am Mass as Religious Education begins at 10:15am at the Woodlawn Catholic Regional School.

First Reconciliation (Penance) is received in Grade 2 & First Communion Classes is received in Grade 3. One year of religious instruction is required prior to preparing for these sacraments.

Confirmation is a two-year program offered to students of Grades 8 thru 12.  Two years of preparation are required for the sacrament, 20 hours of service, two retreats, as well as paperwork for your chosen sponsor.

The Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults is a one year program for anyone over the age of 18 needing to receive one or all of the sacraments of Baptism, Reconciliation, Eucharist and Confirmation.

All classes are held at Woodlawn Catholic Regional School on Weeden Street in Pawtucket. For more information or to volunteer as teacher or aide, please contact the church rectory or email Liza Roach at
