Celebrations

We mark important events in the liturgical year in celebration. Most masses, celebrations and prayer services take place at the school. On occasion, we also celebrate mass at different parishes our students attend.

Religious Education

All of the schools in Edmonton Catholic School District use a Religious Education Program that is prescribed by our Alberta Bishops and provided through the National Office for Religious Education in Ottawa. The Program ranges from Kindergarten to Grade Twelve, and offers students an overview of our Catholic faith as well as grade specific themes.
