Religious Education

The Religious Education and Faith Formation Programs of Immaculate Heart of Mary provide opportunities for educational and spiritual development as well as service opportunities within the parish and wider community.  The Program:

  • Is rooted in the Gospel and our Catholic Tradition
  • Recognizes parents as the primary educators of their children    
  • and seeks to support them in this vocation
  • Enables families to connect faith with daily life
  • Encourages life-long learning
  • Fosters the belief that service is an integral part of discipleship and provides opportunities for parishioners to become aware of needs and to respond those needs
  • Supports family life, recognizing the diversity that exists in contemporary families



We are currently seeking teachers for the 2017-18 faith formation year for Sunday School, Grades 2-6, Grade 8, and Confirmation.
