Religious Education

We are dedicated to promoting excellence in catechesis, that is, the lifelong Christian formation of the total person in heart, mind, and will. We are dedicated to encouraging and preparing young people to live Christ’s message through formation in education, faith, prayer, worship, community, moral development, and service. Our Religious Education program has several options to help families pass their faith on to their children, please visit our Religious Education page for more information.

Religious Education families enjoy fellowship and breakfast before class.

St. Mary Religious Education Program

St. Mary Religious Education allows parents and students to encounter God and learn more about Him together. We have updated our program to meet the needs of families during this unprecedented time. Using the monthly retreat guide, families will meet Jesus and bring him to the center of their family. Parents will attend catechesis sessions alternating for fathers and mothers each month. Students will not have class in-person but will return their weekly retreat reflections at any Mass or via email.

We look forward to learning and worshipping together this year and will keep you updated regarding any changes.
