The first two objectives of St. Aloysius School as listed in the Parent Student Handbook are “to make known to each student the person and message of Christ” and “to develop a sense of moral values which will enable the child to assume his place in the Church and society.” Although these objectives are implemented throughout school activities and the academic curriculum, they are realized in a special way through the religious education program.
Diocesan approved curriculum materials enhance each student’s understanding of church and community, the sacramental life, service to others and the importance of prayer. Liturgical celebrations, especially the celebration of the Eucharist, lead students to cherish and build on a personal relationship with Jesus. Service projects that engage the student in a meaningful way instill an understanding of and commitment to living the Beatitudes. Understanding the gift of our Catholic faith prepares students to advance in Christian living, in civic responsibility, in charitable works, and in a spirituality that reinforces each student’s sense of morality.
The St. Aloysius religion program prepares students for a life of faith.
