Faith Life at Seton
Catholic Christian Atmosphere
Religious education at Seton Catholic School occurs in two major areas: the study of the Catholic faith and integrating faith experiences into the life of each student. Besides classroom instruction in religion, liturgical and sacramental participation is part of our school program. Celebration of the Sacrament of Reconciliation, all school liturgies, and opportunity to participate in Mass are part of the spiritual life of the school. Parents/guardians are encouraged to become aware of and encourage their child(ren) in their faith life. The school can only support what is taught and experienced at home.
Prayers, Practices, and Beliefs
A list of prayers and other basic beliefs and practices for students has been developed. They are listed in the appendix of the parent handbook. Prayers may be introduced at one level and students may not be expected to have them memorized until the next year. However, students are expected to have an understanding of these prayers and they will be a part of our prayer at school. We encourage parents to also prayer at home with their children.
Preparation for the first reception of the sacraments of Reconciliation and Holy Eucharist will be given in second grade. Parents/guardians should be directly involved in the religious education of their children. Meetings are held to inform and assist parents/guardians in the sacramental preparation of their child.
Students and teachers plan and participate in liturgies. Parents/guardians are always welcome to attend.
