Spiritual Life Activities
The Spiritual Life Committee’s mission is: Deepening the Catholic Faith of students and parents alike, while building our relationship with God
Our Spiritual Theme for the 2016-2017 year is: Prayerful: the faithful prayed
The committee is comprised of Spiritual Life class parents who visit their classrooms, often monthly, to work on faith forming activities. The upper grade classes are partnered with lower grade classes to work on many of these activities. The students especially enjoy these opportunities to get together with their “prayer partners.” Activities this year will include:
Sept: Writing a class Prayer
Oct: Rosary making with prayer partners
Nov: Your favorite Saint project with prayer partners
The Bulletin Board across the hall from the Nurse’s office is the decorated monthly by the committee, highlighting a different spiritual theme.
Additionally, the committee will promote school-wide service projects as well as faith enrichment for parents and students alike.
