Hanson Memorial High has a twofold Religious Formation Program: a responsibility to

teach the ongoing revelation of the Message of Jesus as entrusted to His Church and a

responsibility to assist the internalization of that teaching into the everyday life style of both

students and faculty. Scripture teaches us that faith without work is useless, and work

without faith is blind. With these two facts in mind, Hanson Memorial High approaches the

religious formation of its students and faculty.

The maturity brought on by Vatican II has challenged the teaching of religion. Society has

also changed, and our approaches to our presentation must change also. Being mindful of the

progress made, the Religious Formation Department wishes to utilize as many methods of

teaching, including discussion, lecture, films, projects, prayer services, guest speakers, etc.

All of these methods will be centered on a prepared daily lesson plan.
