Religious Education


Classes to resume next week, Wed., March 1.


Religious Education weather closing information:

The Immaculate Conception Religious Education program follows Lapeer Community Schools' calendar and school closing policies. Generally, if Lapeer Community Schools does not have classes, neither do we have Religious Education classes that day. Likewise, if Lapeer Community Schools cancels evening activities on a Religious Ed. class day, we will also cancel our classes. 

We realize that weather and road conditions can vary significantly. If we have Religious Education classes but you feel road and weather conditions are too unsafe for you to travel, please stay home. In that case please call us at 810-664-0808 or 810-664-9594 or email [email protected]

We plan to contact student families and catechists as soon as possible via phone, email and the WeConnect app (see the LapeerCatholic.org homepage to download). However, sometimes conditions change so quickly that it's not possible so please use the above information as a guideline.


First Reconciliation Retreat and Sacrament information

Our First Reconciliation Retreat is scheduled for Saturday, Feb. 11 from 10 a.m.-12:30. We will start in the Community Room (lower level of the former Bishop Kelley School) with videos, a Q&A session with Father Hurley and practices of the Sacrament both in the Community Room and in the Confessional in the Church.  Light refreshments will be available in the Community Room.

We are always in need of volunteers. Would you please consider helping us as a catechist or classroom aide? We will provide all the materials and support you need.

(Please visit virtus.org. to find a session that meets your schedule,)

Thank you to the catechists, helpers, and parents supporting the religious education of our children. This is a very important task and responsibility. We are all here to help.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me. Generally, I am in the Religious Education office M-F from 9 a.m.-3 p.m.
