Recent Church documents concerning Catechesis have all emphasized that memorization still plays a vital role in Catechesis. It is our hope that, in learning the truths of the faith “by heart,” our students will have the firm foundation by which their hearts will be led to closer union with Jesus Christ. Our students compete in classroom religion bees to determine school finalists for our annual Tournament of Truth. Winners from this competition go on to represent our school at the annual Diocesan Tournament of Truth. Our students were the Novice level champions at the 2013-2014 Tournament of Truth.
