Religious Education and Sacraments

St. Jerome was a scholar and historian who translated the bible into Latin and because of him, we have a modern translation of the bible and are able to fully understand and study Holy Scriptures. St. Jerome, a true intellectual and scholar, once said " ignorance of scriptures is ignorance of Christ" subsequently, all grades levels take Religion as an academic subject. Students leave our school with an understanding of the Catholic Faith, Traditions, and Scripture. Our teachers are encouraged to “Teach as Jesus did” and our students are always encouraged to follow in Jesus’ footsteps.


Our Students attend school mass every Friday at 9:00 AM and on Holy Days of Obligation. Also, family masses are offered for all grade levels as part of their religious understanding and preparation on Saturday evenings at 5:00PM. Our Second graders who are baptized Catholic prepare for their Sacraments of Healing and Catholic Initiation. Our Eighth graders who are baptized Catholics prepare for the Sacrament of Confirmation as a way to seal their Catholic identity.
