Saint Mary’s Catholic School welcomes families of all faiths. Our non-Catholic students participate in all aspects of faith formation to the extent they can according to Catholic teaching and the teachings of their respective faiths.
At Saint Mary’s not only do your children receive lessons on the basics. They also learn the values they need to make the world a better place to live. They learn that we are all children of God, loved by God, and that we should care for others accordingly.
Catholic students prepare for the Sacraments of Eucharist and Reconciliation in religious studies class. Every student, regardless of his or her faith tradition, learns about these Catholic Sacraments and is invited to attend the celebration at Saint Mary’s Catholic Church. Students entering our school after the second grade, will receive sacramental preparation through the preparation program in their parish.
