Religious Education Program Objectives

The primary purpose of the St. Elizabeth- St. Brigid Religious Education Program is to assist the parents in passing on to their children the Catholic faith.

The objectives of our program are fourfold:

  1. To prepare students to be active members of our faith community.
  2. To instruct students in the meaning and significance of Catholicism.
  3. To involve students at every grade level in the sacramental life of the Church.
  4. To encourage parents in their efforts to pass on our faith to their children.
