RELIGIOUS EDUCATION

DSC_0117_edited.jpg

"The Church teaches that parents are the primary and principal educators of their  children. Because the Christian religion is not merely a subject in school, but rather a  whole way of life, education in the faith begins in the home in the child’s earliest years.  “Family catechesis precedes, accompanies, and enriches other forms of instruction in  the faith.”

(Cf. Catechism of the Catholic Church 2223-2226)

St. Thomas More University Parish is student focused, but family friendly. Members of  our permanent community with school-aged children and teens can take advantage of  the following helps to education in the faith:

St. Aloysius School

Preschool - Grade 8 Catholic School in Bowling Green

St. Aloysius Elementary and Junior High School provides the Bowling Green  community with a high quality, faith-based Catholic education for students in preschool  through grade 8. Members of St. Thomas More Parish are eligible to receive the same  parishioner grant that members of St. Al’s receive. For more information on St. Aloysius  School or to register your child, visit the Parish School Website.
