CATECHETICS (RELIGIOUS EDUCATION)
Catechetics is the center of the Catholic school. A conscious effort is made to create a Christ centered atmosphere by stressing Christian values in the classroom as well as throughout the school. A conscious effort is made to integrate catechetics into every aspect of the school curriculum.
Faith experiences are an integral part of catechetics. Opportunities for Eucharistic Liturgies, Reconciliation, Stations of the Cross, classroom prayer and service to others are to be included.  Community is at the heart of Catholic education, not simply as a concept to be learned, but as a reality to be lived.
The principal, in conjunction with the Pastor and the Director of Religious Education, work with the teachers in the religious development and sacramental preparation of the students.  Parent Preparation Programs for Reconciliation, Eucharist, and Confirmation are held during the year.  These are parish programs and involve all eligible children and parents of the parish.
