Sunday mornings at St. Mary’s are an exciting place to be! We have a vibrant curriculum and amazing Catechists in whom our children have wonderful examples of what it means to be a disciple of Christ.
More than “pouring in information,” our Catechists understand the necessity of sound doctrine + discipleship formation. Our goal is to form the whole child in the practice of Catholicism and to help them come to love Jesus, His Church, and the practical ways to live our faith.
You will frequently find our children in the church, exploring God’s sacred space and learning about the sacraments. In our classrooms, scripture comes alive as the children become familiar with the bible, its people and God’s saving action throughout all of history.
I hope you will join us! It is the responsibility of every Catholic parent to see that their child is formed in the faith, whether it is through a Catholic school, religious education or homeschooling. (If you homeschool, please let us know. We will help you in any way we can.)
