Parish Religious Education

Welcome!  You are looking at a page dedicated to the faith formation of the children and adults of St. James and St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic Parishes.  St. Augustine said that finding God is the greatest human achievement.  We hope that the programs offered at St. James and St. Elizabeth Ann Seton will help you in this endeavor.

The five-day St. James/Seton School offers religious education daily.  For information on the curriculum please contact Jo Kusek, PRE Director at 402-572-0369.

P.R.E. is the religious education program for students who attend public schools.  The program is shared by St. James and St. Elizabeth Ann Seton parishes; classes for grades K-8 meet at St. James/Seton School at 4720 N 90th Street by St. James Church.  In 2017-2018, one session will be offered from 6-7:15 pm on Wednesday nights.  

Please see the Adult Faith Formation page for a listing of current offerings for adults. 

It is so important to keep growing in our knowledge and love for God and the Catholic Church. May God bless and sustain you in your search for God!
