Religious instruction is provided on a daily basis and should be the basis for having your children enrolled at a Catholic school. The curriculum is age appropriate and includes the doctrines of our faith, liturgical experience, sacramental preparation, prayer and apostolic activity.
The pastor, associate pastor, director of religious education, principal and teachers design the religion curriculum.
The Director of Religious Education (DRE) is employed by the parish to coordinate all religious education, while working closely with teachers and parents.
Since prayer is a necessary and a valuable part of a person’s spiritual formation and enhances our awareness of God, formal prayer is taught and offered in each classroom daily. Spontaneous and creative prayer is encouraged and nourished.
The faculty and students plan special prayer services and para-liturgies for various Church celebrations. Students in grades K through 8 attend weekly liturgy. The Sacrament of Reconciliation is received by students in grades three through eight at prayer services during Lent and Advent. Devotion to Mary is encouraged through the Rosary and May Crowning.
A two-year program of preparation is provided for students preparing for the first reception of the sacraments of Reconciliation, Eucharist and Confirmation. Parent meetings and special family projects supplement the formal program in school. Ordinarily, students receive First Reconciliation and First Eucharist in second grade and Confirmation in eighth grade.
