Thanks to your beautiful and faith-filled curriculum, my children have thrived not only academically, but most importantly in their Catholic Faith. You have helped make our family whole by filling that space or void between just saying we are Catholic, and actually living and working toward being a Catholic Family.
There is no way a child could complete the CHC course of study and *not* have a strong foundation for a deep love of the Faith.
