General Information

Religious Education (Roman Catholic/Ukrainian Catholic) 15–25–35 and Religions of the World 35

In Catholic schools, students participate in a religious education program that is authorized by the Bishops of Alberta. Catholic high schools offer Religious Education (Roman Catholic) 15–25–35 and Religions of the World 35. In Catholic high schools offering the Religious Education (Ukrainian Catholic) program, students participate in a religious education program that is authorized by the Bishop of the local eparchy. 

The religious education programs were written by local Catholic religious education teachers and Church leaders in response to the needs of students in Alberta Catholic high schools today. Go and Make Disciples: Living the Great Commission (2015), both Roman and Ukrainian Catholic editions, is approved by the Bishops of Alberta and is in compliance with the teachings of the Catechism of the Catholic Church. The curriculum strives to engage students in the search for meaning through four major themes: Christ and Culture; Jesus Christ: God’s Gift of Salvation; In Search of the Good; and the relationship of the Catholic Church with the religions of the world. The curriculum further addresses the study of specific topics through four “windows of authenticity”: truth, goodness, the spiritual, and religious community.
