Our Mission

The Religious Education Program at Annunciation-Our Lady of Fatima assists parents in religious formation of their children (grades 1-7) as Roman Catholics through:

  • Weekly lessons created by faith-filled adults who engage and challenge students to a deeper understanding of Jesus Christ with the goal of a more personal and spiritual relationship with Him.                                                 
  • A community environment where all families feel welcome and enthusiastic in their love for Jesus Christ and the practice of the Roman Catholic faith.             
  • Prayer and reflection based in sacred scripture and sacred tradition including monthly communal experiences of Catholic practices such as Stations of the Cross and the Rosary.                                                        
  • Seasonal celebrations of the Church year to foster enjoyment of the Church’s sacred traditions.                                                                               
  • Special events to prepare students and their parents for the celebration of First Eucharist, First Reconciliation and Confirmation.
  • Our program follows the Archdiocesan Curriculum Guidelines which may be found here for Grades 1-6 and here for Grade 7.
