Religious Education

Religious Education at Galen aims to integrate faith, life and culture. Our Religious Education programs are based on the diocesan “Source of Life” document. It is designed to lead the students towards an awareness and understanding of themselves, as well as their relationship with God as loving Father, with Jesus as His Son, with the Holy Spirit and with the Church.

Students study the liturgical year, with a focus on Lent and Easter. They study Prayer, Saints, Advent, Jesus, the Sacraments and key people of the Old Testament.
Our aim is that students will become more aware of the presence of Christ in their everyday lives. It is hoped that our students will develop an appreciation of the world of God’s creation, an awareness of the needs of other people, and an “openness” to life in general. Students also have the opportunity to participate in prayer, class liturgies and masses.
