Religious Education

St. Mark Religious Education

The mission of the Religious Education Program at St. Mark Church is to assist parents of students in grades 1 - 9 in the religious formation of their children. The Catholic Church has always taught that parents are the primary educators of their children. The Religious Education Program provides systematic instruction to students to supplement the teaching and example of their parents. The goal of the program is to work cooperatively with parents to give their children a good knowledge, understanding, and love of their Catholic faith, so they are prepared to live a life of holiness in today’s world.

COVID-19 Outbreak Updates 

Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, religious education classes are cancelled through the end of this 2019-2020 academic school year 

We here at the Saint Mark Religious Education Program feel very strongly that our youth, your children, need faith formation more than ever.  For that reason, we have decided to bring religious education to you via distance learning.  Each teacher for grades 1-9 has already established a means to continue religious education and has reached out to you regarding this plan.  Teachers are using packets, Remind assignments, virtual classes via Zoom, or a combination of these learning tools.  So far, we have had a tremendous response, with some classes achieving 100% participation.  Our goal is to achieve 100% participation in all classes.  Please do not hesitate to reach out for help in accessing distance learning.

Moving forward here is a chart of what distance learning will look like across the grades:
