Mission Statement

It is the mission of the Religious Education Department of St. Mary and St. Juan Diego Catholic Church to assist and support our parents in the formation of their children in their catholic faith. We are committed to instill an abiding love of God and one another and share the fullness of our faith through the doctrines and traditions that is has to offer.


We acknowledge parents as the primary people in their child’s faith formation. Our hope is to work with and guide parents as needed through our Religious Education Program.

Our curriculum includes Sacred Scripture, Sacred Tradition, liturgy, lives of the saints, Catholic customs and practices. Through these things we hope to provide the tools for the children in our program to know, love and live their faith and grow in their relationship with Jesus Christ.

We welcome children just beginning their faith journey as well as those who have already received their sacraments of initiation. We realize the needs of the children in our faith community vary and we do our best to meet those needs.
