of students and parents.

Does my child need to attend Religious Education every year?

Children are expected to participate in Religious Education every 
year. This is not only a parish policy but a diocesan policy as 
well. The curriculum builds on the previous year's studies and 
experiences. Just as math and language arts cannot be learned on 
a sporadic basis, neither can religion.
