Religious Education

Medicine Hat Catholic offers a varied and high standard of programming, however our purpose extends beyond the imparting of information or the development of skills.  We exist to educate the whole child, to form the whole person, to nourish each person as a child of God.

In a world that is constantly changing, our mission is to offer something to our young people that lasts, something that will sustain them long after they leave our buildings. With the support of the home and the parish community, we demonstrate a way of living that offers guidance through challenging times and encourages our children to become the best people they can possibly be. Ultimately then, our Catholic schools are places of hope.

We are dedicated to supporting our teachers in their ministry, through faith formation programs, professional development opportunities and the provision of faith based resources. Each year we dedicate time and energy to enhancing the religious symbolism in our schools, so it is clear in our buildings, as well as in our students and staff, exactly who we are and why we exist.

We have “shown the face of Christ” to many young people and their families throughout the years, and are determined to continue to bring more young people into relationship with a loving God, to bring to them the “Good News”.

“I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me”. Philippians 4:13
