Religion

MORE ABOUT THIS EVENT

The Religion Department at ASA follows the Armenian Catholic church’s guidelines for teaching lessons. The Bible and Catechism books are the primary sources for the department to teach religion, in addition to teaching the Holy Trinity, hymns, the Ten Commandments, and the history of Armenia’s Christian traditions. Students learn about the teachings of Jesus Christ, the saints, the Sacraments, and several of the most important prayers of our Christian and Catholic faith, including the Hail Mary, Our Father, and the Nicene Creed, and the prayers we recite before and after each meal. Each morning, before the start of the school day, the student body collectively prays under the leadership of Sister Lucia, and each month the students celebrate mass. During major holidays, like Thanksgiving and Christmas, the department organizes a special program of prayers and caroling to help celebrate our Christian values. During Easter, the department organizes a play demonstrating the last 12 hours of Jesus’ life and also plans the Stations of the Cross prayer assembly. In May, the eighth grade graduating class attends a Holy Spirit Retreat where they continue to explore and strengthen their Christian faith and spirit. The Religion Department aims to fill their students with the inspiration and values of our Christian faith and to view Jesus Christ as our role model and savior.
