MISSION STATEMENT

The mission of St. Francis of Assisi School of Religious Education is to nurture the seeds of faith in the youth of our parish.  Our curriculum and sacramental programs are designed to foster this growth in faith that will develop and mature as they grow into disciples of Jesus Christ.  These programs affirm and assist the family’s efforts to cultivate their children’s relationship with God, through Jesus Christ, as members of the Catholic Church. This is done in a positive and caring environment in which every child is given the opportunity to develop his/her faith, character, attitudes, and values.
