Parish Religious Education Program (PREP)

Our Lady of Good Counsel

Surrey, BC V3T 4L5

The Parish Religious Education Program (PREP) assists parents in teaching their children about the faith. It is intended for children attending public schools from preschool through high school.   

Similarly, “Teen PREP” is a post-confirmation program for students in grades 8 - 12. 

PREP runs from September to May. Classes are from 6:30 pm to 8:00 pm.

  • Classes on Tuesday are for students in preschool through grade 4. A two-year preparation program for First Communion takes place on Tuesdays.
  • Classes on Thursday are for students in grades 5 through high school. A two-year preparation program for Confirmation takes place on Thursdays.

Volunteer catechists support the parents as they lead their children to understand our Catholic faith, to grow in their love for God, to joyfully journey with Christ, and to prepare to celebrate the Sacraments of Holy Communion and Confirmation.

Help is always welcome!
