Catechesis

At a time when society is becoming increasingly secular, and some people even question the existence of God, there is an even greater need for young people to benefit from a high quality Secondary Religious Education curriculum.

At St Joseph’s College, the greatest emphasis is placed on Christ centred learning which engages the head, heart and hands.

Students in Years 7-12 are invited into a deeper and more intimate relationship with God through their exploration of the Scriptures, their participation in personal and communal prayer and their living out of Catholic social and moral teaching. Signs in classrooms are there to constantly remind students “What would Jesus do?”

The secondary RE curriculum provides opportunities for young people to ‘see, judge and act’ in response to Jesus’ great commandment to love God and love others and thus, ‘live life to the full’.
