We are not merely trying to instill knowledge, facts and history of our Faith - although these are important - the larger goal is to help your child learn about and fall in love with Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ! We hope for your precious young person(s) to make a personal, heartfelt choice to become a lifelong DISCIPLE of Jesus. Our Lord wants everyone to be happy on earth and eternally with Him in Heaven. Following Jesus’ way of LOVE as true DISCIPLES will make the world a better place, and maximize love and happiness for EVERYONE!
