Welcome to our Religion Website!

Our patron saint for our religion classroom this year is St. Josephine Bakhita. I chose her because she has an incredible story of strength and forgiveness. Her story reminds me to look at the faith with new eyes. I’ll be sharing more of her story in religion class next week, so please be sure to ask your child to fill you in once school starts.


As I worked to prepare for the upcoming school year, I have been praying for our students. We can also ask our patron St. Josephine for her prayers. We will be praying the below prayer as a class as we start the school year. I invite you to pray it in solidarity with us. 

Loving God, rewarder of the humble, you blessed St. Josephine Bakhita with charity and patience. May her prayers help us, and her example inspire us to carry our cross and to love you always. Pour upon us the spirit of wisdom and love with which you filled St. Josephine Bakhita.
