Religious Education Curriculum

Comprehensive Religious Education Curriculum Central to Catholic Schools

The Diocese of Buffalo requires all Catholic schools to implement the diocesan religion curriculum which presents an authentic and relevant presentation of the Catholic faith, faithful to the standards and mandates of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB). This allows students of all grade levels to be challenged and grow as persons and believers in today's world. In our Catholic schools, Christian values are incorporated into all aspects of the curriculum. 

"Forming Disciples" the Diocesan Faith Formation curriculum at the elementary level contains the essential content of Catholic doctrine to be taught at each grade level. Each grade level includes a list of vocabulary words, prayers, and saints that students at each level should have mastered.

Students learn Sacred Scripture, the Creed, prayer, and social justice related to each faith theme. They also study saints that exemplify correlated Christian virtues. Age-appropriate service projects provide the link to integrate these practices into their daily life.
