The Saint Therese catechetical program integrates the proclamation of Christ’s Gospel message, the nurturing of community, opportunities for worship and prayer, and the motivation for service.
The four core elements of the program are Message, Morality, Community, and Worship. These are addressed within the context of religion classes. Specific objectives are reinforced through direct instruction.
Pflaum’s Promise magazine is used in preschool religion classes, Christ Our Life by Loyola Press is used in kindergarten through grade 8. Grades 2 and 8 also use their sacramental preparation books.
THE RELIGION PROGRAM
Students in grades K to 4 present a Christmas program each year that reflects the Christmas season and the true meaning of Christmas as focused on the birth of Jesus.
To bring the story of the crucifixion to life, the eighth graders portray in a solemn way Jesus' passion, death, and resurrection during Holy Week.
