Religious Education

The Religious Education program at Our Lady of Soledad Parish is essential to carrying out the Parish mission; to teach and preach the gospel to all people while celebrating our cultural traditions and diversity.  The aim is to put people not only in touch but in communion, in intimacy, with Jesus Christ. Parents, through word and example, are the first and foremost primary educators of their children.  Our program helps parents in their work by teaching our rich Catholic doctrine and heritage.  This process is carried out through group sessions and teaching, participation in prayer, special celebrations and worship opportunities, and service to others.  In this way, the child is led to a closer relationship with God, other children, and the total Catholic faith community.
