The essential goal of Religious Education
The very reason for our existence is to offer each child the opportunity to develop their faith and come to know Jesus and understand the Catholic heritage.
The essential goal of Religious Education in a Catholic school is to encourage and assist children in their growth to Christian maturity in the Catholic tradition. This education enables the children to:
- Know and love the Father, Son and Holy Spirit as revealed by Jesus
- Develop an awareness that God is our friend who loves us and walks with us every day of our lives
- Experience, within a secure school environment, the confidence to cope with life
- Grow as active and supportive members of our faith community within Parish life
- Know, share and respond to Jesus’ message of love.
