Our students are involved in faith formation since their first moments at St. Anne School. Building on this strong foundation we invite our students to see their faith as a way of life and as an exciting way to be in the world. We are working to both inform and form young disciples of Jesus Christ. Our religion program is hands-on, with a strong emphasis on service-learning and self-reflection. Our students spend time together in daily prayer, in preparation for first Sacraments, liturgical celebrations, weekly mass, serving others, and spiritual retreats. The St. Anne School Religion curriculum is integral in the nurturing of the whole child: intellectually, physically, emotionally, spiritually, socially and culturally.
In order to maintain the integrity of the Catholic Religious instruction, the teachers at St. Anne School must earn Catechist Certification as required by the Diocese of Charleston. Through learning and collaborating with colleagues and Faith Formation Catechists in our parish, teachers are able to deliver Christ’s message of hope and love to our students. St. Anne School implements the Religion Curriculum created by the Diocesan Board of Catechetical Advisors and the Catholic Schools Office of the Catholic Diocese of Charleston. This guideline serves to help our students grow up in the church and have love, wisdom, and knowledge of Jesus Christ. Topics for each grade level include Doctrinal Content, Prayers and Sacramentals, and Activities.
“My prayer is that your love may more and more abound, both in understanding and wealth of even experience, so that with a clear conscience and blameless conduct you may learn to value the things that really matter, up to the very day of Christ” (Philippians 1:9-10).
