Religious Education Program

The Mission of the Religious Education Program of Our Lady of the Cape Parish is to assist parents in the religious, moral, and spiritual formation of their children. Parents are the primary educators of their children, teaching by word and example. Our parish catechists support the parents and students by providing quality religious education in a nurturing, faith-filled environment.

Objectives:

To provide a rich variety of faith experiences through a Christ-centered curriculum, retreats, Intergenerational learning through ‘Faith on Fire’ program, liturgies and prayer services, in addition to regular Sunday Mass attendance. To encourage community service through collection of food for the needy, participation in the parish Haiti out- reach, Christmas Child Shoebox Project, Loaves and Fishes and other charitable drives.

A Student’s Prayer for a New School Year

 Lord Jesus, I ask for Your help as I begin this new school year. Allow me to experience Your presence in the many blessings You put before me.

Open my eyes to the new challenges and exciting opportunities that this new school year brings.

Open my heart and mind to new friends and new teachers.

Give me a generous spirit to be enthusiastic with my studies and courage to accept new opportunities.

Help me to be attentive to my teachers and let me experience Your presence in my new friends.

Jesus, inspire me to do my best this year!

Amen
