Religion class at Immaculata is about fostering the Catholic faith in the individual and in the school at large. Students take religion class every year throughout their high school career at Immaculata. The overarching goal of the program is to build a loving, faithful, and hopeful culture by learning Catholic values and applying them to our school and the community beyond.
Academically, we explore many of life’s “big” questions, like:
Does God exist?
Why am I here?
Does my life have a purpose?
Who is Jesus and how is he relevant in my life today?
Other topics covered in the religious education program are Church history, Catholic morality, the Sacraments, the old and new testaments of the bible, and world religions, to name a few.
The spiritual life of the student is nurtured through religious education and daily prayer, as well as school-wide masses, assemblies, retreats, service, and
paraliturgies. Prayer is a regular practice at the beginning of every class, led by either the teacher or a student. Eucharistic celebrations occur every month throughout the school year. Students and staff fulfill the different Mass ministries, including lectors, altar servers, Eucharistic ministers, and musicians.
