Mission of SS. Cyril and Methodius
Religious Education Program
The mission of our parish Religious Education Program is one that entails more than merely knowing about Jesus Christ and the Church. It also recognizes the need for students to reflect on the experience of Jesus in their own lives, to speak the faith they share, and to relate to one another so that the Word of God becomes present when they gather in Christ’s name. Thus, we provide for our students a Religious Education Program that is:
CHRIST – centered
FAMILY – centered
SCRIPTURE – centered
The GOALS of our parish Religious Education Program are:
- To teach the message of the gospel
- To help students establish a personal, loving relationship with Jesus and the Father.
- To foster participation in the sacramental and liturgical life of the Parish.
Together with the knowledge of basic Church teachings, the students are guided and encouraged toward an on-going appreciation of prayer, Scripture, liturgy, the 10 Commandments, and the Sacraments. With these basic fundamentals, and the living example of both parents and catechists, we strive to teach Catholic Christianity as a way of life.
