Religious Education 

 

Go, therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son,
and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with
you always, until the end of the age. (Mt 28:19-20)

 

The purpose of our Religious Education is to make the Gospel living, conscious, and active in our participants’ lives.  The Religious Education Program participants include children, catechists, Priests, Deacons, Religious Education Staff, Parents, Prayer Partners, Mentors, Guests Speakers, Workshop Facilitators, and our All Saints Catholic Church Community.

The Religious Education Department's primary function is Faith Formation to people aged three to adult, Sacrament Formation, and Spiritual Growth. By following the steps of catechesis, our program promotes knowledge of our faith and builds on moral development, teaches about our church, prayer, and Catholic community, and calls us all to participate in worship and to be good disciples.   We learn that faith is a gift from God; it grows and develops throughout life, is alive in the community, and lives in our thoughts and actions.  All students are expected to attend regular Sunday Mass as well as attending Religious Education classes.
