Religious education at Our Lady Queen of Peace School is directed toward enabling the student’s faith to “become living, conscious, and active through the light of instruction” (“To Teach As Jesus Did”). Catholic doctrine is taught, and the program reflects Catholic teaching as expressed in official Church documents. The program seeks to proclaim and teach God’s word in an atmosphere that promotes the faithful acceptance of it and the responsibilities it imposes.
Students engage in daily prayer and participate in the liturgy and other religious experiences. The students are helped to examine attitudes and values in order to develop behavior consistent with the faith they profess. Students learn about human needs, justice, mercy, and peace. They are given opportunities to respond to the needs of others by working together on numerous service projects. Personal, family, local and global concerns are addressed from a Christian perspective. Students are expected to respond to one another with love and a sense of justice.
