Religious Life of the College

​​​​​​​​​​​The Religious Life of the College (RLOC) P-12 is focused on the second dimension of Religious Education, commonly referred to as “teaching people to be religious in a particular way” (Moran, 1991). The Religious Life of the School P-12 provides a lens through which a school may audit and further develop its religious life.
