Religious Education Program Overview

Philosophy

Our Parish Religious Education Program is structured to provide catechetical instruction in the Catholic faith to all parish children who are attending non-Catholic schools. Parents, by word and example, are the primary educators and teach their children from birth throughout life. At Baptism, the parent undertakes the responsibility of providing for their child’s Christian formation. The Religious Education staff is here to assist parents in the spiritual formation and ongoing moral development of their child through a formal program of continuous faith formation.

In our program, we seek to provide the catechesis and skills for each child to grow and mature in understanding, positive attitudes, and faithful practice of the Catholic faith. Through the process of catechetical instruction, we hope to deepen the faith and sense of belonging to the Catholic Church in our children, so that they will be moved to sharing of their time, talent and treasure in the life of the Church, now and throughout their lives. We strive to assist children in committing themselves to a personal relationship with God characterized by a vigorous sacramental life, a lifelong pattern of prayer,Christian service, and growth in understanding the Catholic faith. This process is achieved with the joint efforts of our parish staff, catechists, parents, and students.

Committed to this active partnership between parish staff and families, we place our efforts with confidence in God’s loving hands.
