All of the Schools in the 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 with an overview of our Catholic faith as well as grade specific themes. 150 minutes of this religion program is taught per week.
Our School Namesake: St. Angela
St. Angela was born in Italy on March 21, 1474. At the age of ten, following the deaths of her father, older sister and mother, the orphaned Angela was sent to live with maternal uncle. She knew that God had chosen a special task for her to do. At the a age of 15, she received a vision telling her she would inspire devout women. She became concerned about the lack of religious training for young girls and the condition of the family and society in general. She converted her home into a school. There she gathered the young girls of the town and taught them the principles of Christianity, directing them to take her lessons back into their homes to share with their families. She began what would become the Institute of Saint Ursula (Ursuline Sisters), founded to teach children, beginning with religion and later expending into secular topic. On January 24, 1540 St. Angela died. She was beatified on April 30, 1768 by Pope Clement Xlll and was later canonized on May 24, 1807 by Pope Pius Vll. St. Angela’s feast day is January 27th.
