Curé of Ars News
STREAM at Curé of Ars School
STREAM is a curriculum where core subjects are coordinated to co-support each other under an educational structure of how science, technology, religion, engineering, mathematics, and the broad spectrum of all the arts are interrelated. The STREAM structure demonstrates how all the divisions of education, faith, and life work together. STREAM incorporates all of the basic elements of STEM and STEAM while incorporating authentic Catholic teaching as an intrinsic and key element in an exploratory, and inquiry-based learning environment.

Last year we were honored by the many professionals who shared their time and expertise with our students. Would you like to be part of an innovative program this year? Please watch the video below to learn more and see how you can be a part of STREAM at Curé!
Learning about the RCIA process
The first step in the Rite of Catholic Initiation of Adults (RCIA) is the Precatechumate, or Inquiry, stage. You will be led to deepen your relationship with God and discover the Catholic faith. We encourage you to ask questions, hear the Gospel, and share your faith with Catholics who are members of the Curé of Ars parish community and with other men and women who are also exploring the Catholic faith. This Inquiry stage will help you discern if you are ready to move onto the next step, the Catechumenate Stage. At Curé, the Inquiry Stage will run October 7th through November 18th and meet on Mondays from 7 to 8:30 pm in the Father Burak room. To learn more about RCIA or to join, please go to , or contact Sister Rosie at 913.649.1337 or
