Our Faith

I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with my loving eye on you. Psalm 32:8

Our school focuses on creating a successful academic environment where students can learn in a faith-based atmosphere. Part of our school mandate is to "grow in our Catholic faith and cultivate a Catholic lifestyle". In addition, our vision at Holy Redeemer and in Living Waters Schools is to create a better tomorrow by knowing God, ourselves and the world. At our school, every child is a gift of hope and joy and has a right to quality teaching and learning in a optimum learning environment permeated in faith to achieve their full potential. Within Holy Redeemer, our teachers establish, promote and sustain inclusive learning environments where diversity is embraced and every student, both Catholic and non-Catholic, is welcomed, cared for, respected and safe. In addition, our teachers create effective relationships by building positive and productive relationships with students, parents/guardians, peers and others in the school and local community to support student learning.

Students will see the Catholic faith throughout the school in each of their classes. While at Holy Redeemer, students are required to take Religion classes. Graduating students must have credits in Religion 15, 25 and 35 in order to take part in the year-end Graduation Ceremony and Banquet. A powerful tradition during HRH's Graduation is annual Light of Learning where graduates light a candle for a special person in their lives to spiritually transfer knowledge and faith.

In addition to to experiencing the Catholic Faith in their classes, students will also to take part part in liturgy celebrations at Thanksgiving, Christmas, Easter and Graduation.
