Faith Formation

We aim to impart our children with a solid foundation in their knowledge of Sacred Scripture as well as the Catechism of Catholic Church. After the completion of our faith formation program, our children will be equipped to understand and appreciate the views of Church in the modern world, especially pertaining to the defense of life and family values. We also prepare our children to develop a revered approach to the holy sacraments of the Church, especially the sacrament of Eucharist. Above all, through this program, we want to nurture a child’s heart and mind to grow closer to be in union with the Sacred Heart of Jesus.


We have a vibrant and active Faith Formation program with more than 155 students and 15 teachers.
