Religious Education

"Our generation will show that it can rise to the promise found in each young person when we know how to give them space. This means that we have to create the material and spiritual conditions for their full development; to give them a solid basis on which to build their lives; to guarantee their safety and their education to be everything they can be!"  - Pope Francis 

As a Church we are called not only to grow as a community, but also as a Christian people! We recall the statement made by the Second Vatican Council, "Holy Mother Church must be concerned with the whole of man's life, even the secular part of it insofar as it has a bearing on his heavenly calling.  Therefore she has a role in the progress and development of education." Religious education remains critically important in the formation of every individual by teaching how to live well now so as to be able to live with God for all eternity. All children from Kindergarden to 8th grade are welcome to be intructed in the catholic faith through our religious education program!
