Religious Education

Education in the Catholic Faith enables us to better understand our faith, become closer to God, and grow as disciples of our faith. Religious education can be received in one of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia schools and here at Our Lady of Consolation through our Parish Religious Education Program (PREP) or Rite of Christian Initiation (RCIA) program. If you have a child attending one of the public schools in Philadelphia or are an adult ad wish to convert to Catholicism, please contact Kim Adair, Director of Religious Education, at She can assist you with learning more about our religious education programs.
