Religious Education

Father Lawrie O'Toole is presented with a gift on his departure after 21 years service to OLHC

The OLHC Religious Education Program is based on the core document “Awakenings” developed by the Religious Education Centre, Ballarat. Our Religious Education Program aims to:

● Assist the children to recognise the presence of Jesus in their lives, through his life and the scriptures.
● Encourage the children to experience themselves as part of creation and to recognise all creation as a sign of God’s goodness;
● Provide a climate where the children’s faith can be nurtured in trust and freedom.
● Lead the children to know, to understand and to appreciate the spiritual and religious dimensions of life as expressed in the Catholic faith tradition.
● Assist the children to appreciate belonging to and celebrating with the local parish community.
