Spiritual Development

       The primary reason for the existence of TMA is the
  religious education and spiritual development of its
  students.  In addition to the formal religion classes, students
  attend regularly scheduled Masses and prayer services. 
  Parents are notified of the Mass schedule so they may join
  students and faculty in the celebration of the liturgy.
  Students have access to the following Sacraments:
  First Penance, First Eucharist, and Confirmation.  Preparation
  for the sacraments is conducted in the student's parish.
       School is opened and closed each day with prayers.  The
  Family Life Program requires strong parental involvement
  and support and is offered to all students during the year.
       All students of TMA pursue the same curriculum,
  including a study of the Roman Catholic religion. 
  Non-Catholics do not enter the sacramental programs, other
  than to listen respectfully to instructions.  They attend all
  the religious services our Catholic students do.
