Parish Religious Education Program (PREP)

Welcome to St. Joseph's PREP!

Weekly PREP Registration

We are so excited to announce that Weekly PREP Classes will be back to in-person beginning Monday, September 20th!  

All classes for Grades 1-7 will be held at St. Joseph Regional School, 11 Harbor Lane in Somers Point, on Monday evenings from 5:45 to 7:00 p.m.  Click on the following link to view 2021-2022 Monday PREP Calendar

For everyone’s health and safety, St. Joseph PREP will follow all State and Diocesan guidelines for COVID-19, including, but not limited to, the mandate requiring masks to be work by all teachers, staff, students and visitors to all schools, regardless of age and/or vaccination status.  

We plan to continue our in-person family events within the Religious Education program, as well as the greater St. Joseph parish community.  Attendance at 6 family events is required by the Diocese of Camden, but more importantly, family events provide an opportunity for fun, faith and fellowship with your parish families.  Click the following link to view the schedule of Parish Family Events for 2021-2022.
