Nativity Catholic Church
Office of Religious Education
Welcome to the Office of Religious Education at Nativity Catholic Church in Torrance, California.


The Office of Religious education would like to welcome candidates ready to prepare for the Sacrament of First Holy Communion and Confirmation.

If you are an adult wishing to receive the sacraments, please contact us to learn more about the RCIA program.

Applications for 2017-18 will begin after Masses on Sundays August 6, 13, 20 and 27 at the Annex from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., and on weekdays September 5 and 12 at the Office of Religious Education from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m.

There are no online registrations and parents with candidates will have to meet briefly with a coordinator or catechist who will review the application form, share the program requirements, gain your commitment to join us for weekly classes at the school, participate in retreats and complete Good Works service projects. 

Confirmation sessions are held every week on Wednesday evenings at Nativity School from 7:00 p.m. to 8:15 p.m. and classes will start on September 13 for Year 2 and on September 20 for Year 1.  

First Communion classes are weekly on Tuesdays or Thursdays from 5:30 p.m. to 6:45 p.m., and classes will start on September 19 and 21.

Register in August for Confirmation to receive an early enrollment discount.  We also invite parents to inquire about a refund of registration fees if you volunteer to assist the Office of Religious Education.

Fill out an application form, bring it with copies of required Baptism and First Communion certificates, and fees to one of the registration sessions.

We pray you are having an exciting summer and we look forward to seeing you.
