IMPORTANT PROGRAM INFORMATION
Course /Church Attendance
A key part of faith formation is attendance. Our instructional time with students is very limited therefore it's imperative that Parents and Guardians play a significant role in developing our student's religious education. This formation can be fostered by parents when they review religion class activities with their children. In addition, adult participation in Holy Days of Obligation, Reconciliation, youth service activities, fund-raising events and weekly Masses help to model for our children and other students our faith in action.
It is important that along with participating in our faith community through Mass and attending Religious Education classes, that parents also work with their children at home to reinforce the concepts taught at Mass in classes. The following document houses all of the curricula for our PreK-8 curriculum. The curriculum includes the major focus points and prayers taught at each of the aforementioned grade levels. Take some time to learn the curricula and reinforce these elements of our faith at home with your children.

To support the concepts addressed in the curricula, we employ a series of religious education books authorized by the Diocese of Madison. To help our middle and high school students prepare for living in our world and to prepare for the Sacrament of Confirmation, we use the Theology of the Body and and Chosen series of textbooks.
