Religious Education at St. Alexander Parish is a religious formation program for children dedicated to inspiring a thorough knowledge of God and the witness of Christian love. We desire to build an understanding of beliefs of the Roman Catholic faith and encourage our children to carry those beliefs out into the world.
St. Alexander supports parents as the primary educators of their children by words and example. Our Religious Education program seeks to nurture and teach our families to live the Catholic faith through a commitment to Catholic traditions and values. Our program also fosters and empowers our students to attain their highest spiritual and creative potential – inspiring all to become informed, caring, and contributing members out into the world. Through the cooperative efforts of parents and catechists, our children strive to grow in their love for God and knowledge of their Catholic faith.
