The purpose of Religious Education is to instruct the children with a strong and solid foundation of the teachings of the Catholic Church and instill in them a love of God and service to our neighbors. We use the Faith and Life Series published by Ignatius Press. These textbooks incorporate the four principal components of catechesis: the Creed, the Commandments, the Sacraments and Liturgy, Prayer and Scripture. Besides giving a clear and comprehensive presentation of our faith, the student textbook is rich in artwork, both original and classical. The Faith and Life Series presents Catholic teaching using the time-tested ecclesial methodology and spiral development of catechesis, in a beautiful, student-friendly comprehensive format.
