Faith Formation

Kids are in ChurchAs a Catholic school, faith formation is central to the culture of the school:

  •  the school day begins with prayer,  and prayer is woven into other aspects of school life.
  •  students receive regular religious instruction.
  • school masses are celebrated monthly in the parish church, and school assemblies and prayer services throughout the year focus on various high points and special days in the church/school year.Lighting the Advent Wreath

All students, regardless of religious affiliation, are expected to participate in the religion program and in all faith celebrations.

Sacramental preparation is coordinated between school and parish. Parents of students receiving a sacrament are expected to attend three meetings designed to help them prepare their children for the sacrament. Information regarding sacramental preparation will come home in the following grades:

  • Grade 2: First Reconciliation (Confession)
  • Grade 3: Holy Eucharist (First Communion)
  • Grade 6: Confirmation

Arrangements can be made for students in higher grades that have not yet received a sacrament to prepare with the appropriate group.
