Our mission:
The mission of Santa Rosa de Lima Religious Education is to bring the children to Christ, who said "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of Heaven belongs to such as these" (Matthew 19:13-15). It is our desire to fulfill this mission through the following:

  1. Provide Religious Education that cares for the whole person, not just the head.
  2. Hand over the faith of the church which includes scripture, tradition and doctrine.
  3. Provide an environment for prayer for both teachers and children.
  4. Prepare them to receive the sacraments - Baptism, Holy Communion, and Confirmation.
