Religious Education

Mission Statement

We, the catechists of St. Mary, Star of the Sea Parish, strive through our presence and actions to help guide our students as they encounter Jesus on their faith journey. We encourage growth of the Catholic Faith through teaching Catholic doctrine and tradition, prayer, faith in action and personal witness to enable the students to share Jesus’ message of love with others. We strive to live the Word of Life always and to reflect it in our personal lives, classroom and in our day to day dealings.
