“The Church continues the mission of Jesus, prophet, priest, and servant king. Its mission, like His, is essentially one – to bring about God’s kingdom – but this one mission has three aspects: proclaiming and teaching God’s word, celebrating the sacred mysteries, and serving the people of the world.” (National Catechetical Directory #30)
The Theology Department at Archbishop Shaw High School seeks to participate in the ministry of Jesus by helping the student develop an understanding and awareness of the Catholic faith and to motivate him to make those choices which will enable him to live as a mature member of the Kingdom. To this end, Archbishop Shaw High School Religion Teachers make full use of the Doctrinal Elements of a Curriculum Framework for the Development of Catechetical Materials for the Young People of High School Age published by the USCCB.
