Religious Education

Religious Ed 6


 “All your children shall be taught by the Lord, and great shall be the peace of your children.”
~ Isaiah 54:13

Our mission of faith formation at St. Catherine of Siena is to look upon each child as created in the image and likeness of God and as a reflection of His goodness. Realizing that God has created all things for His glory and our benefit, the challenge of being a living witness to the Gospel should be central to the development of each student.   We believe that understanding Jesus and His message is essential to knowing Him, loving Him and serving Him always.

The primary purpose of our Religious Education program is to assist parents in sharing the faith with their children. Parents whose children do not attend Catholic schools are strongly encouraged to enroll their children in the one of our education programs, as preparation lessons are necessary for children to receive the Sacraments of Reconciliation, Holy Eucharist and Confirmation.

St. Catherine’s offers programs for elementary (Grades 1-5) and middle (Grades 6-8) school children.
