The parent has the primary and sacred responsibility to educate their child in the faith. Immaculate Heart of Mary Religious Education Program will assist you in the responsibility. It is essential to your child’s growth and development that you live the life of faith at home. The effectiveness of our religious education program depends on this. The child learns in his or her religious education class that celebrating the Eucharist on Sunday as a community is essential to being a Catholic. Therefore, the child must attend the weekly Sunday or Saturday liturgy supported by his/her parents.
It is very important to realize that the values and views that you have as a parent/guardian, becomethe values and views of your child. Your child receives a “mixed message” when what is taught bythe Church is not experienced by the child in his/her family.
Parents are responsible for the transportation of their children to and from Immaculate Heart of MarySchool where Religious Education Classes take place. The only exception would be those studentswho have permission to walk to and from their home, or for those who take public transportation.
