CRE Children's Education
Catholic Community of Bartlesville


Religious Education

Faith Formation is a lifelong journey! We are thrilled to help your child(ren) grow in their relationship with our Lord! Whether your child is needing Weekly Catechesis or Sacramental Preparation, we are excited to walk on this journey with you and your family.

Kindergarten - 8th Grade (CRE)

Combined with St. James Catholic Church (Bartlesville), our children in PreK through 8th Grade come together to learn more about our Catholic Faith and to become Disciples of Jesus Christ! 

CRE Weekly Meeting Time

Wednesday Evenings, 6pm - 7:15pm 

St. James Catholic Church 

5500 Douglas Lane, Bartlesville, OK 74003

CRE is currently on summer break and will resume in the Fall 2024.


First Communion Sacramental Preparation

Our Sacramental Preparation program is designed as a faith formation journey for the kids of our parish and St. James. Typically, students in the 2nd Grade receive their First Holy Communion. 

For your child to receive their First Communion, he or she must be enrolled either in our CRE Faith Formation program or at St. John Catholic School. 


Children's Liturgy of the Word (CLOW) 

Children’s Liturgy of the Word presents the Word of God in a fun, interactive, and age-appropriate way to children in Pre-K to fourth grade. The children are escorted to the youth room upstairs after the opening prayer of the 10:30 a.m. Sunday Mass during the school year.
