Anyone who attends Catholic School or a parish religious educaiton program is expected to know certain key truths of our faith: truths about God--Father, Son, and Holy Spirit; why we go to Mass and receive the sacraments; why the Bible is so vital to our Christian lives; how a follower of Christ acts; why and how we pray; what the Blessed Virgin Mary, the saints, and believers all around the world mean to us; why we have a Church and how it is organized.
Beyond dogmas and doctrines, rules and customs, children and youth growing up in the Catholic Church need to come to see our faith truly as a way of life and as an exciting way to be in the world. Our religious education programs, then, are both informing and forming young disciples of Jesus Christ.
