Spiritual Development

Spiritual formation takes place through . . .
Your child will learn to pray through song, formal Catholic prayers, and informal prayer from the heart. They will learn to praise God through prayer and to ask for his help for special intentions.
Planning and Participating in Mass
Students plan and participate in all-school Masses on Fridays in our gym. Younger students are paired with older students to provide a role model on appropriate behavior at masses and in the classroom.
We provide an environment where the children enjoy a positive learning experience guided by Christian values, always encouraging kindness to others.
Parish Involvement
Students in the Children’s Choir (grades 4 through 8) and altar servers (grades 3 through 8) share their time and talents with the parish and school community.
Community Service
Community service is encouraged at all levels. Students organize food drives and other events to benefit the community throughout the year.
Pastor Visits
Frequent visits by the priests and other members of the religious community develop an awareness of parish and church life.
All grades have daily religion classes including instruction about God’s love for us, how special people like the saints are models for Christian life, and the doctrine and history of our faith.
Reconciliation services are held throughout the year. Sacramental preparation takes place during religion classes: Sacrament of Reconciliation and  Sacrament of Holy Eucharist in second grade; Sacrament of Confirmation in eighth grade.
