St. MARY SCHOOL OF RELIGION
The Catholic Faith Formation of St. Mary’s Parish, inspired by the love of Jesus Christ, is committed to build a strong Foundation of Faith for the children and youth in the parish. Faith development begins in the home and parents are the primary teachers and models of our faith. The goal of our religious education program is to assist in the development and growth in their faith, bringing about in our children a deeper knowledge and love of Jesus Christ and drawing our young people into a deeper relationship with God through active participation in the life and ministry of the Church.
ACADEMIC YEAR - FAITH FORMATION
We will no longer be holding summer sessions. Religious Education will take place during the academic year. Information on days and times is forthcoming.
WEEKLY MASS ATTENDANCE
Mass Attendance is always the top priority of our Religious Education Program and sould be top priority of your family. Religious Education only works if families take the faith seriously and that means going to Church as a family.
