Spiritual Life Activities
The Spiritual Life Committee’s mission is to deepen the Catholic faith of students and parents, alike, while building our relationship with God and others within our world.
The committee is comprised of Spiritual Life Class Parents who are assigned to each grade. They work closely with the teacher to enhance the religion program and to work on faith forming activities within the classrooms, monthly. The upper grade classes partner 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 include, among others:
September: Writing a Class Prayer
October: Making Rosaries with Prayer Partners
November: Favorite Saint Project with Prayer Partners
Additionally, the committee promotes school-wide service projects, as well as faith enrichment for parents and students alike.
