Maternity of the Blessed Virgin Mary Catholic Church

Religious Education



Religious Education is a journey of continuing faith. It begins at home and is reinforced through the Sunday Eucharist and weekly Religious Education classes.  We strive to teach the basic principles of the Catholic faith, giving meaning to the rituals and symbols of Catholicism, and helping them grow in their prayer life.  It is our desire to work in conjunction with students' families.  In order to be truly successful, classes need to be combined with the family's daily commitment to practicing the faith (regular Mass attendance, commitment to God, service and others and good example)

Formal Religious Education classes begin in Kindergarten and continue through grade 8.  There are 2 days of Religious Education to choose from:

  • Wednesday evenings      6:00 p.m. - 7:15 p.m. (grades Kindergarten - 8th)   OR
  • Sunday mornings            10:15 a.m. - 11:30 a.m. (grades Kindergarten - 4th)
