Religious Education

For our students to grow in their faith, religious instruction is useless unless it is followed in and supported by the home environment. Therefore, as parents you are a vital part of the overall process. Our part is to offer each child the opportunity to come to know and love God in the truest sense of the Word.

Our students are offered daily instruction in Catholic Doctrine. The parish clergy visit the classrooms regularly to assist with religious education. Students attend Mass once every week and on holy days of obligation. First grade students are paired with an eighth grade buddy that sits with them and helps them through the weekly Mass. In addition, students attend paraliturgical services throughout the year such as Stations of the Cross during the Lenten season. The sacrament of Reconciliation is offered to the students during Advent and Lent. Opportunities for Christian service are offered to all of our students.
