Our Lady Of Grace Religious Education Mission Statement

The Mission of Jesus was to make known to us the love of the Father and show us the way to Him.
Knowing our weakness, Jesus sent the Spirit to strengthen His followers to live as God’s people.
This mission Jesus shared with His Apostles and Church. This mission has been passed on to us in Howard Beach.

At Our Lady of Grace, we continue to proclaim God’s love to journey together as His followers to depend on the Spirit and to build up the Kingdom of God here and now, in our midst.

At Our Lady of Grace, we believe that religious education is a life-long process; that the goal of religious education is to know God and to respond to God in one’s life; that the role of the catechist is to facilitate this process by sharing faith and by good example;  that each child entrusted to us is uniquely loved by the Lord and is called to a loving relationship with Him.

That together – with the religious education staff, the parents/guardians, the children are called to build a Christian Community in the City of God.

Attend Mass with your Family at Our Lady of Grace.

Attending Mass regularly is the most important thing you can do as parents to fulfill your role as primary educators of the faith to your children.
