Religious Education for Children

The Religious Education program at Our Lady of Peace Parish is designed to give young people the opportunity to encounter Christ in their lives through instruction, prayer, service, and participation in the Liturgy. The instructional curriculum we use for 1st through 8th grade is the Faith & Life Book Series. The book series incorporates Scripture, Church Tradition, Prayer, and Sacred Art in every lesson. This combination will guide students to become disciples of Christ.

Our Lady of Peace Church serves a diverse community. As such, we respect and celebrate one another’s similarities and differences. The most important similarity is our love and respect for our Lord Jesus Christ.
