Religious Life

Philosophy of Christian Education

The Christian Education program is designed to foster growth in the student's faith, in the knowledge of their faith, and in the understanding of themselves as Christian people.

Religious Education Classes

Participation in the Religious Education Classes is an integral and vital part of the education and formation of each student in the school. It helps lead them to study and learn the history and content of the Catholic Faith. The objective remains to create in them a deep and life-long love for the Church, its Sacraments and prayer life.


The importance of the Mass is recognized at Archbishop Carney both as a way of increasing the Faith of the individual and helping in the building of Christian community. Each month, the school has a mass that is celebrated in the school gym by the priests around the region.
