St. Katherine Drexel Home Study Association
The parish offers a Home Schooling Association for all parish families who home-school their children. Homeschooling families may use any of the Church-approved religious education curriculum programs they wish to educate and catechize their children. Evidence of successful completion must be presented each year to continue. In addition, family members in the association are encouraged to participate in whole-family sessions (Gift and Faith Festivals) and are required to attend middle school youth ministry (EDGE) and appropriate parish Sacramental Preparation programs.
Enrolling in this Life-long Faith Formation program for Grades 1 - 5 constitutes a Covenant with God and Mary, Mother of Mercy Parish, that enrollees will fully participate in ALL aspects of the program (age-specific catechesis, whole family catechesis and home study) including Masses connected to the program.
