Our Mission

The mission of our Elementary Faith Formation Program is to foster within an educational and worship environment the teachings and values of Jesus Christ and the Roman Catholic Church. Through the promotion of these teaching and values, a Catholic community is created where students are accepted, cherished and challenged. All are welcomed. Parents are honored and respected in the catechetical process as the first educators of their children.

Our Goal

The Catholic Church of St. Mary respects the uniqueness of each child and the diversity of needs within our parish family. The Director of Religious Education, under the guidance of the Pastor and the Diocesan Office of Family Faith Formation, devises an elementary level faith formation program to meet the needs of its students – challenging them to grow in the knowledge and understanding of the Catholic faith, its teachings and practices. The Religious Education program strives not only to teach about Jesus, but as importantly, strives to inspire a relationship of friendship and lasting love with Jesus.
 
Our Mission and Our Goal can only be fulfilled through a spirit of cooperation shared by our Faith Formation family – staff, parents and students. The quality and success of the program recognizes the need for each group to accept the responsibility of creating collaborative relationship built upon mutual respect and encouragement.
