Spiritual Life

  • The nurturing of the moral and spiritual growth of every child is a major focus of school life. Catholic/Christian principles in teaching and worship are emphasized. Children are encouraged to apply Christian principles in their everyday lives through their words and actions.

    Our school welcomes children from all religions and ethnic backgrounds. All children are included in daily religious instruction. Respect for all beliefs is fostered. Christian community is nurtured through sharing liturgy, prayer, and service projects.

    For children of the Catholic faith, sacramental preparation is offered for the Sacrament of Holy Eucharist in the second grade, and for the Sacrament of Reconciliation in grade two and up (based on the child’s readiness).

    Children in Kindergarten through grade 8 attend the 8:30 a.m. liturgy in church every Wednesday. Teachers are encouraged to request class liturgies and/or prayer services in their classrooms throughout the year.
