Our Parish Religious Education Program
Our Parish Religious Education Program

OLG PREP aims to educate children in the tradition of the Catholic Church in the truest and fullest sense by giving them the necessary tools of learning and by fostering wonder and love for all that is genuinely to read well, speak well, and think well and ultimately because truth and beauty are good in themselves and desirable for their own sake.

We seek to incorporate our students into the wisdom of two thousand years of Catholic thought, history, culture and arts so that they might understand themselves and their world in the light of the truth and acquire the character to live happy and integrated lives in the service of God and others. Education in this deep and comprehensive sense extends beyond the classroom and is more than just the acquisition of skills. It encompasses the whole of one’s life. For this reason, OLG PREP seeks to involve families more deeply in the life of the parish and in the education of their children.
