The primary mission of our Church is to proclaim the good news of Jesus Christ. This mission is carried out in a variety of ways through preaching, witness and education. The Church has always acknowledged that parents are the primary educators of their children in the ways of faith. The goal of religious education is to help others to grow in their knowledge and understanding of Jesus Christ.
It is to be hoped that as people come to know and understand the teachings of Jesus and the challenge that he presents to us for life that the learner will come to personally embrace their faith and follow Jesus as his disciples. The Church in the Diocese of Killaloe takes its commitment to education in faith seriously and supports the work of our teachers and catechists in our schools.
