Summary/Abstract: The article has been taken to refl ect on the nature of educational and education activities, which provide support to a person in achieving maturity. For such action, we believe, above all, everything that triggers and develops in a person’s ability to live in harmony with each other, with the environment and the Transcendence. Inspired by W. Brezinka we think we are of the opinion that human morality, which is to support and lead it to maturity, an important role is played by religion. The rationale for this claim is primarily that refer to the human thinking and valuation gains a permanent and unchanging point of reference for action. Such attitude of man is spiritual sphere of man. Through it he reveals his beliefs and attitudes and accepted values. Thus it draws to man the way his conduct promoting a specifi c vision of life, a refl ective attitude to everyday life, fi lled with respectful attitude to the world and hope for a life of happiness (immortality), which offers to man by God. On the basis of its refl ection, we believe that morality is the common denominator of all dimensions of human life. For these reasons it is an undeniable and important element for the achievement of maturity combined with achieving inner harmony, which helps a person living in the community. It turns out that this process is the result of many activities in which an important function can also meet the religion. This observation requires more explanation to what extent can shape purchased by a person living competencies to achieve maturity. Its acquisition is inscribed in the process of gathering experience and discovery and acceptance for their own specifi c values. Grants to support such a person is a religion. A particularly important role to fulfi ll religious knowledge, which reveals the reality of human life in a new – the transcendent aspect. Its value lies in the fact that it supports the development of the ability to make moral judgments. This style of action is possible but only if the person appeals to religious faith. Faith promotes man in the adoption of absolute values. Understanding the importance of religion in the development of persons and reaching its maturity demands concrete actions at the level of educational and pastoral.
