St. Dominic offers a wide variety of programs designed to deepen the spiritual lives of those who participate. Discover what it means to be Catholic. Develop your understanding of God and your faith. Start your children on their own faith journeys.
St. Dominic School is a fully accredited Catholic, co-educational elementary school for students in grades Kindergarten through eight. Here, you will discover an environment rich in opportunity, diversity, friendship, and faith. Our mission is to educate and inspire students to be competent, confident, compassionate leaders through love of God, service to others, and a challenging, innovative academic curriculum.
Recognizing that parents are the first educators of children in the faith, the goal of St. Dominic’s parish school of religion (PSR) is to foster a personal relationship with Jesus Christ that is informed by the Catholic faith and nurtured by the members of the parish. Striving to plant seeds of faith that will inspire the children’s faith development, weekly PSR classes accompany children through the elementary grades 1-6. PSR classes are held in the school building between Masses each Sunday. See the calendar for more details. For more information about this, please contact Liz Woconish, Director of Religious Education at email@example.com or 216-658-3672.
The Catechesis of the Good Shepherd is a Montessori approach to the religious formation of children aged three to Kindergarten. Children gather in an "atrium," a room prepared for them, which contains simple yet beautiful materials that they use in a hands-on approach to learning. For more information about this Montessori approach, visit the national website or contact Keri Cupp, CGS Coordinator, at 216-658-5780 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Parents, classes are normally held on Fridays and Sundays. But, amid the COVID-19 pandemic, this is no longer the case. As we face these unusual times, please use this link from the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd United States Association to find resources to use at home with your children. May God bless you and your domestic church!
