Registration is now open for our Religious Education Programs (including preparation for First Holy Communion and Confirmation) for the Pastoral year 2023/2024.
Religious Education classes for children aged 5- 11: Classes meet during the school year after the Sunday morning Mass (11:15- 12:00). Our classrooms are on the first floor off of the church’s atrium. When planning the religious education school year calendar, we take into account the vacation breaks of the American School of the Hague, The British School of the Netherlands, the International and European Schools of the Hague as well as the Dutch school-year calendars.

First Holy Communion: Children who were born on or before on or before 1 October 2016 and have not yet made their First Holy Communion are eligible to sign up for the First Holy Communion preparation classes. Classes are available in both Dutch and English and take place after Mass on Sunday mornings at the same time as the other RE classes. You can register your child using the Religious Education registration form. More information on our First Holy Communion program can be found here
Confirmation: To be eligible for the Confirmation program, students must be mature enough to actively participate in mass, homework, and class discussions without parental supervision and should be at least 14 years of age as of 1 May 2024. Classes are held on Sunday afternoons, before the evening Mass. Regular class attendance is necessary for the candidates to be prepared to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation.
