Catholicism

Our school provides many ways to learn how to live a Catholic Life inside and outside of our school walls.

CATHOLIC SCHOOLS WEEK

Each year our school celebrates Catholic Schools Week. Watch this video about our CSW2020.

ALL SAINTS DAY CELEBRATION

Every year we celebrate the Feast of All Saints with a party.  The students do projects to learn about saints and dress up as their favorite saint for the party.

ST. PHILOMENA’S BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION

Our parish and school have a special devotion to St. Philomena.  A statue of her stands at the end of our school’s main hallway.  We celebrate her birthday on January 10 with some treats.

ADORATION OF THE BLESSED SACRAMENT

The students adore Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament after morning Mass on First Fridays. They spend a half hour in adoration.  Parents are invited to join them in adoration.

ROSARY

Grades K-4 pray a rosary on Monday and Tuesday mornings.  All students attend Mass on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday at 8:00am and recite prayers and devotions before dismissal at 3:10pm.  Parents are invited to join their children at any of these times.

SERVICE

Many of our students are altar servers at daily Mass.
Grades 3&4 are ushers for daily Mass.

CHOIR

Students may participate in youth choir and an instrumental group.  These groups sing and perform during parish Masses throughout the year.

SACRAMENTS

Preparation for First Communion and Reconciliation is provided in the classroom for 2nd grade students. 8th graders receive preparation for the sacrament of Confirmation.

Although not directly connected to our school, many of our students participate in these 2 Catholic groups.

YOUTH GROUP

Our Middle School Youth Group meets twice a month after school on Fridays.  More information can be found on the parish website here.

CONQUEST

Conquest is a Catholic Youth Ministry program for boys in grades K-12 to grow in knowledge of their Catholic faith, friendship with Christ, and make a difference and positive impact on their families, friends and in the world around them.  Holy Spirit fathers along with some fathers in our neighboring parishes run our Conquest club. Meetings are held at the local parishes.
