Catholic Identity

All teachers sign an Oath of Fidelity to the Magisterium of the Catholic Church and all classes are imbued with the truth and beauty of our Faith. Religion teachers receive catechist certification or participate in ongoing professional development through the Archdiocese of Louisville to obtain the necessary requirements to teach the Faith.

Safe Environment Training through the Archdiocese of Louisville is required of all adults who are on campus on a daily or regular basis.

Little Flowers/Blue Knights are service organizations for the younger grades. Mercy Maidens and Men of Mercy are organizations for the Upper School grades that practice the Spiritual and Corporal Acts of Mercy in the community at large.

Holy Days of Obligation – We try to ensure that Mass is offered on Holy Days of Obligation depending upon the availability of a priest to say Mass for us on that day.

Sacraments and Services

Preparation for sacraments of Eucharist, Reconciliation, and Confirmation

  • First Reconciliation and Communion – 2nd grade
  • Confirmation – 7/8th grade

While the children do receive preparation for sacraments in their Religion classes, parents should check with their parish Director of Religious Education to ensure they will recognize the sacramental teachings as preparation for receiving the sacrament. Some parishes require all sacramental students to attend religious education classes at the church. Other parishes, if preparation is accepted, may require students and parents to attend retreats or informational meetings.
