Faith-based Learning

Faith is about much more than religion classes at Niagara Catholic - our faith is alive in all that we do. The Religion and Family Life component of our curriculum is a very important part of student learning in our Catholic schools. With schools and parishes closed, Niagara Catholic will continue to offer faith-formation resources so students can continue their faith journeys at home.
