Religious Education | Family Life
As a community of believers created in the image of God, we inspire and nurture strong communities of faith. Our Religious and Family Life Education programs impart the knowledge of our faith through Scripture, story, and tradition. The Assembly of Catholic Bishops of Ontario, through the Institute for Catholic Education (ICE), provide curriculum policy documents which identify the expectations for each grade and describes the knowledge and skills that students are expected to demonstrate. Prayer, liturgy and the celebration of the sacraments are opportunities to demonstrate our thankful awareness of God’s presence in the world.
"Jesus provides the model for how our schools and parish communities need to accompany students and families with great respect, patience and love, inviting all to deepen their understanding of Christ and his Church," (Renewing the Promise, A Pastoral Letter for Catholic Education, Page 7, 2018, ICE). The collaboration of caring adults in the school, the home, and the parish supports students as they grow to become discerning believers and responsible citizens formed in Catholic traditions.
Our Catholic faith is made visible in all subject areas through the infusion of Catholic Social Teachings, virtues and gospel values into daily learning experiences. The Ontario Catholic School Graduate Expectations guide the learning journey for all students.
