Religious Education

RELIGIOUS EDUCATION

The primary aim of Catholic education is to help a person live a deep spiritual life.  Religious instruction is provided to students in grades K-8 on a daily basis.  Students also attend school-wide Mass weekly.  Parents and parishioners are invited and encouraged to attend these liturgies.  The Sacrament of Reconciliation is offered during Advent and Lent.  The students also participate in the Stations of the Cross during Lent, the Living Rosary in October and May Crowning in honor of our Blessed Mother, Mary.

Non-Catholic students are expected to attend and participate in prayers, school liturgies and religious services.  The only exception is that non-Catholic students will receive a blessing rather than the Eucharist at Holy Communion.  The Sacrament of Eucharist is reserved for those who have made full profession of faith in the Catholic Church through Baptism and First Holy Communion.

Grades 2-8 students will be provided the necessary instructions and catechesis for receiving the Sacraments of Reconciliation, Confirmation and Eucharist.
