Mater Dei is a strictly Catholic home school co-operative located at St. Patrick’s Church Parish in Ripon/Escalon, CA. We offer Catholic parents support and resources to fulfill their obligation as primary educators of their children. Our mission is to provide instruction, informed by the traditions and beauty of our Catholic faith, for enrichment classes in a group setting. Mater Dei is open to families who agree to support its mission while accepting full responsibility for their child’s education. Parents, after prayerful consideration, are asked to contribute their time and talents in ways that support the co-operative, yet do not detract from the duties of their state in life.
This online forum is for active co-op members to keep track of activities, share Catholic or education related news items, schooling or homemaking tips, and for requesting prayer.
