Since its beginnings as a mission church in the 1920s, Saint Bede the Venerable Parish has steadily grown into the large, yet close-knit community of 1,000+ households. St. Bede works collaboratively with the Montgomery Catholic Preparatory School system; the St Bede campus has an enrollment of 200 children from Pre-K4 to 6th Grade. In addition, St Bede Parish offers a safe and educational Catholic environment for its pre-school infants up to age 3 in its Catholic Children's Ministry opening in the fall of 2014. We also reach out into the greater community through various ministries.

Catholic Children's Ministry @ St. Bede: A New Beginning
It is with hope, mercy and God's love that the parish begins to care for and help the parents of our families to educate their most precious gifts, - their children. Making full use of all our resources, St. Bede has begun its new Children's ministry fully alive in the Catholic faith. Please keep this vital and delicate ministry in your prayers for the blessing of all the children.
