Traditions

Prayer Partners

  • Our younger students are paired with the upper classmen, who teach by example reverence for our faith and each other. Working together they attend monthly masses, create seasonal crafts, share buddy reading and take part in retreat days. This gives the younger students the opportunity to develop a special relationship with the older students who serve as a role model and a friend.

 

Bible Blessing

  • Every year at the first school Mass, 6th grade students receive a Bible that is blessed by the pastor. Any new students to Grade 7 and 8 also receive a Bible. BIBLE means "basic instructions before leaving Earth" and these Bibles are given to our students to guide them in their lives, particularly as they begin to prepare for the sacrament of Confirmation in the coming years. In a special way, the parents of students receiving Bibles are invited to join the school to celebrate Mass.
