Youth Education & Formation

SAINT HILARY SCHOOL is a Catholic elementary school dedicated to the Gospel message of Jesus Christ and the education of students in grades Kindergarten through 8 based on this message. The school personnel work together to develop each child spiritually, academically, emotionally, physically, and socially, utilizing each student's gifts and talents. St. Hilary School does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national or ethnic origin in the administration of educational policies and other school-administered programs.

To register children for St. Hilary School, contact Mrs. Fagan at (215) 887-4520.

PARISH RELIGIOUS EDUCATION PROGRAM (PREP): The purpose and goal of the Parish Religious Education Program is to provide systematic instruction of the Catholic Faith and most importantly to encourage students in the daily living of Christ's teachings and values. Religious Education classes are held on Tuesday evenings from 6:30 pm to 7:30 pm in St. Hilary's school. These classes are for parish children in Grades one through six who attend public or non-Catholic private schools. Children are prepared to receive the Sacraments of First Reconciliation, First Eucharist and Confirmation as part of the Religious Education Program. Theological update meetings are also offered for parents as their children prepare to receive the sacraments. For more information or to register your child call Sister Dolores Smith, C.M.S. at the Rectory. 

THE EDGE PROGRAM is a middle school faith formation program at St. Hilary of Poitiers Catholic Church. Every other Thursday evening (twice a month) from 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm in our Rev. Cosgrove Parish Center, we host a variety of our 7th, 8th and 9th grade students who attend the area Public Schools and St. Hilary’s Catholic School for weekly programming during the school year. 

SAINT HILARY CYO provides various opportunities for the youth of the parish to develop into mature and responsible Christian citizens. The organization offers a diverse program of spiritual, cultural, social, social service and athletic events as a means of infusing Christian principles into daily lives. Children who are parishioners or who attend St. Hilary School may join starting in 6th grade. Parents are needed to volunteer for coaching and for helping with the numerous activities sponsored by the CYO. For more information contact the CYO coordinator at (215) 887-4520.
