Welcome to the St. Cyril PREP registration page! St. Cyril Parish offers Catechist instructed Religious Education for children who attend public school. PREP (Parish Religious Education Program) assists parents in the Faith formation of their children. PREP is a gradual process of discovery and instruction in the traditions and teachings of the Catholic Faith. St. Cyril PREP offers Levels 1 through 7. Each level of PREP builds on the learning from the previous year with age-appropriate curriculum. While PREP is a vehicle for Sacrament reception it is not the sum total purpose. The purpose of PREP is to guide children into the development of a lifelong relationship with Jesus Christ and a lasting love of their Catholic Faith.
