Religious Education is a lifelong process to which Catholic schooling contributes. Its purposes are:
- To foster within each individual a growing understanding of and relationship with God.
- To help individuals to understand and immerse themselves in the practice of their Catholic faith tradition and to have an appreciation of the faith traditions of others.
- To enable individuals to participate fully in the life of the Catholic community, including liturgical celebrations.
- To heighten each individual’s commitment to bringing the light of their faith to a discerning encounter with the surrounding culture and thus working towards its transformation.
