The philosophy of the Mary Our Queen Religious Education program is to provide an atmosphere wherein the child can grow in his / her relationship with Christ and with others and to provide a religious program that will instruct the students in Catholic teachings and traditions.
Religious Education in our parish exists as an aid to the parents, both in their own lives and in the lives of their children. Aware of the diverse society in which we live our Christian commitment, we wish to serve the needs of the individuals of this society and in particular, the needs of the members of our parish family.
Particular emphasis in our educational program is put upon adult involvement. We stress that we can and will only assist parents in their obligation of educating their children. We do not usurp the rights and privileges of the home, for it is in the home that the Christian life must be taught and lived. It is the sincere desire of each member of our faculty to work with parents toward accomplishing the important task of forming our students into mature, responsible Catholics.
