The Religion program here at St. Mary School focuses on developing students’ knowledge of our Catholic faith while supporting spiritual growth with a strong emphasis on service to others. The program is built upon the Curriculum Guide provided by the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston, using RCL Benziger’s Blest Are We Legacy Edition. Spiritual growth is nurtured through weekly Mass attendance, as well as traditional prayers and devotions. Students learn to follow Jesus’ example of service to others through individual service projects and school wide programs.
