Is there such a thing?

All I'm asking for is a local Roman Catholic church that will allow me to teach my daughter her religion classes myself. We home school using an excellent catholic program {Catholic Heritage Curricula} and I don't really see any point in having to pay $60+ and go early for something she is already getting in more detail at home. Plus my daughter has massive food allergies, so being in a room with 20+ other kids isn't safe for her health - if a child had eaten peanut butter for breakfast prior to attending it could kill her from residue on their hands.

So far every Parish I've mentioned it to won't even think of it, but I know it can be done.

My daughter is starting Kinder this fall so I want to find somewhere now so we will be at home there.

Extra Plus if it's on the NE side or downtown area {We use Via to get around} - right now we normally attend either St. Mary's downtown or when I can get someone to watch my daughter I attend the Latin Mass at St. Pius X.

I believe the church off 1604/Culebra just past Taft (sorry I'm not sure on the name) is homeschool friendly. They offer classes there for homeschool kids, coops and such, a few days of the week. It's NW, definitely not NE, but it's possibly worth looking into?

I hope others are able to provide additional info, sorry that I have so little.

That is St. Anthony Claret....not sure at all how VIA-friendly it is, though.

I agree with the buses and you know, I'm not sure on religion homeschool friendly? I'm sorry. I just reread your post more carefully and I'm not sure what my friends that homeschool do re: religion classes. I know they homeschool regular school and have coops there off/on, but I'm not sure if the church requires a religion class? I'm sorry, I wish I had more info for you. If you can't find additional information let me know and I'll ask around.

Have you checked our Lady of the Atonement? Off of 1604 and Babcock. I'm pretty sure that we have quite a few homeschoolers present.

Hi There...

We attend Our Lady of the Atonement. We also use Catholic Heritage Curricula. I don't believe that Fr. Phillips requires children to go to the religion classes there. He said it was up to the parents. We're going to put our daughters in the classes just to meet new friends (we are new to the parish - and recent converts). I have one going into second grade, one going into kinder, a 3 year old, a one year old and a baby about to be born in 2 weeks. We love this parish! It has a very reverent Mass and we've grown close to many families so far. My daughters are gluten intolerant, so I can sympathize with food allergies. Our girls also attend the homeschool co-op one day a week at St. Anthony Claret which is a lot of fun (and a very homeschool friendly parish). Feel free to email me for more info.

God bless,
