PREP - Parish Religious Education Program - This is a joint ministry of both St. Boniface and St. Lawrence parishes.  The parishes provide a program for youth from Kindergarten through 8th grade. 

The PREP program also provides preparation for the sacraments of Reconciliation, and First Eucharist, which traditionally is celebrated while youth are in 2nd grade.  In ordinary circumstances, children enter a sacramental preparation for Reconciliation and First Holy Communion after a period of at least a year of catechetical preparation through the parish religious education program or Catholic School.   

The PREP program also provides preparation for the sacrament of Confirmation, which traditionally is received at the end of the 8th Grade.  In ordinary circumstances, youth are admitted to sacramental preparation for a period of two years (7th and 8th Grade) through the parish religious education program, or Catholic School.

Registration takes place in August and classes start in September and run through May.  Classes are 9:00 to 10:00 AM on Sunday mornings at the St. Lawrence Parish Center on Winthrop Street in South Williamsport, behind the St. Lawrence Church.  Please see the PREP site on this web page for more detailed information, including Family Registration Form and PREP Calendar.
