What is Shepherd’s Promise?

Shepherd’s Promise is weekly religious education for students in Grades K-8 geared for children who attend public schools, charter schools and those who are homeschooled.

Each class is taught by two volunteer Catechists. Classes are held in the Evangelization Center (school) building at St. Thomas More. We encourage our classes to be a faith community where they not only learn their faith, but learn how to express it as well. In addition, we offer many experiences involving our beautiful campus. These include a student-led Mass in the church sanctuary, praying in the Adoration chapel and Saint scavenger hunts in the Devotional Cove. We also hold special Advent activities, Live Stations of the Cross during Lent, and a Marian Crowning in May. A minimum of 80% class attendance to the program is required.
