Religious Instruction

Religious Instruction is considered as part of the core curriculum in all grade levels in St. Mary’s School.  Religious instruction includes a study of the Catholic faith and practices, Biblical study, and the teaching of Christian values and morals. This will be the third year using the religion series entitled “Christ Our Life” published by Loyola Press. Parents are encouraged to log onto to access activities which can be used in the home setting. (Note: Especially the daily 3 minute online retreat!)


Classes for students in pre-kindergarten through grade six begin and end the school day with prayer. Students attend Mass on Fridays. On Monday mornings, students meet for prayer services, which are prepared by the students.  In these contexts, prayer is a conversation with God, where by we can petition, praise, glorify, and thank God. It is an important part of our lives.
