Growing kids faithfully for over 125 years!

An organized Religion Curriculum is part of the Preschool and Kndergarten through 8th grade program.  Daily religion classes include prayer.  We also attend Mass weekly and on Holy Days of Obligation, which reinforce the students' faith in God.  All students take part in the Mass by reading the Gospel messages, saying petitions and serving as song leaders.  Students deepen their faith through school liturgies.  The daily religion classes provide a foundation in faith history and nurture strong values to help our children as they encounter new challenges, issues, and concerns.


The students have the opportunity to share their faith with the community by visiting New Richmond Nursing Homes, having Prayer Partners, and praying for others.  The discipline is Christian based and values are strongly emphasized Community Service.
