Our Lady of Peace Parish Religious Education Program
The PREP program serves to educate children in the tradition of our Catholic Church. We seek to incorporate our students into the wisdom of two thousand years of Catholic thought, history, culture and arts so that they might understand themselves and their world in the light of the Faith and acquire the character to live happy and integrated lives in the service of God and others. Education in this deep and comprehensive sense extends beyond the classroom and is more than just the acquisition of skills. It encompasses the whole of one’s life. For this reason, OLP PREP seeks to involve families more deeply in the life of the Parish and in the education of their children.
