We endeavor to impart a knowledge and understanding of religion to the children to help them in the continuing process of becoming mature Christians in attitude and action. Since this is the essence of our work together as Christian educators, and since Christianity demands a deep personal relationship with Christ, the role of prayer, our primary means of intensifying this relationship, must play an important part in the curriculum. As a Catholic institution, the privilege of prayer is ours daily.
