Our Religious Education program at St. Ambrose Parish in Bristol, VT serves youth in first grade through tenth grade. Families who are registered in the parish are welcome to sign their children up for classes.
Our Classes meet from September to May on Sunday mornings starting with the 8:00am mass, class starts at 9:00am with “coffee hour” in the parish hall and dismisses at 10:30am from classrooms.
All families need to register their children using the registration form below. Please mail it to or drop it off at the parish office.
As with any parish, St. Ambrose relies on volunteers to teach religious education classes. We are always interested in strengthening our volunteer pool. No prior experience is necessary – just the willingness and desire to walk with the youth of our parish on this part of their faith journey. God invites us all to share our gifts and talents with our community – is God asking you to bear witness to the gospel as a catechist?
Our Catechists meet regularly to help ensure that the sharing of our faith for all age levels is as effective as it can be. For more information contact Emma Kalamarides at 802.468.7277
Students in grade two prepare to receive two important sacraments – Reconciliation and Holy Eucharist in the second grade. Students must be baptized or show proof of baptism prior to receiving these sacraments. Students who have not received these sacraments and who enter this program after grade two prepare for them, in addition to attending regular classes with their peers. Generally this involves a parent-guided home study; materials are provided.
Students in Grades 9 and 10 prepare to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation, which takes place during the tenth grade year. Students must receive Baptism, Reconciliation, and First Holy Eucharist prior to being confirmed.
Parent meetings are held for all 2nd and 10th grade parents.
