Religious Instruction

At Cathedral School we celebrate our faith through:
  • Daily Prayer
  • Weekly Mass
  • Seasonal Celebrations (i.e. October School Rosary, Lenten Stations of the Cross etc)
  • Sacramental Programs
  • First Reconciliation (Grade 2)
  • First Communion (Grade 2)
Every school day begins and ends with prayer. Formal religion classes are taught, but Religion permeates the curriculum. Students are provided with a variety of prayer experiences, both in the classroom and in church. These prayer experiences may include traditional, spontaneous, and contemporary prayers, Advent and Lenten prayers and paraliturgical services, scriptural services, stations of the cross, and rosary devotions.

Once a week students will participate in the Mass. Pastors from the local parishes celebrate Mass with the students, staff, and parents on a rotating scheduled basis. 

Students in the second grade are prepared by their teachers and parents for the sacraments of Holy Eucharist and Reconciliation. Students receive their First Holy Communion and First Reconciliation at their individual Parish. First Communion is traditionally scheduled the last Sunday in April or first Sunday in May. Students will be prepared for First Reconciliation the first semester of the school year.
