We mark important events in the liturgical year
in celebration. Most masses, celebrations and prayer services take place at the
school. We also celebrate mass at St. Joseph's Basilica at least once each year.
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.
