For our homeschool families, (those families who homeschool for all subjects, on a full-time basis), if you choose to homeschool for sacramental years (grades 2, 7, and 8), please contact the Religious Education office. If this is not the case for your family (you do not homeschool all school subjects for instance), your child must either be enrolled in a Catholic school, or in RE.
Our St. Veronica parishioners who attend another Catholic school and are preparing to receive the Sacraments should register with St. Veronica Religious Education program for 2nd, 7th, and 8th grade by September 1st.

St. Veronica Religious education follows Fairfax County Public Schools for inclement weather closings. If FCPS closes school, or has an early dismissal of school on a regularly scheduled Religious Education day, we will also cancel classes. Please check fcps.edu for current status information. St. Veronica RE will also email parents, but this may take longer. The FCPS twitter page, or FCPS home page is the earliest to update regarding open/closed status during inclement weather.
St. Veronica Church, by the grace of the Holy Spirit, will strive to bring parents and children of the parish into a deep, personal communion with Christ and His Church, and to foster in them a missionary zeal for souls by:
- Proclaiming the Word of God and His loving plan of salvation as expressed in Holy Scripture and the Sacred Tradition of the Catholic Church;
- Acknowledging every person as a child of God, uniquely created by the Father in His image and likeness;
Teaching the Person of Jesus Christ, the source and summit of all life, through whom we are granted our salvation.
