St. Mary’s Church Religious Education Program
It is the mission of St. Mary’s religious education program to assist parents in introducing the child to the primary tenets of the Catholic Faith. Each child is invited to encounter Christ: through prayer, study, works of charity, and especially the Sacraments. The goal is to assist children in understanding their Faith, living it through good works and most especially forming a relationship with Christ Himself, who is our Divine Brother. It is faith that will sustain and nourish the child throughout life. What greater gift can parents offer their children than life in abundance with Christ? Together we follow Him, by the grace of His cross and resurrection.
