Saint Mary’s students begin their school day in prayer and pledge.  In addition, we follow the diocesan curriculum guidelines for religious instruction.  Our belief is that the family is the beginning source of faith in our students lives.  We continue to encourage the students to pray daily and to live in accordance with the teachings of our faith.
