Faith Formation play an active role in a Holy Spirit School student’s daily life. Each school days begins with the entire school assembling in the gym for morning prayer. Throughout the day, teachers provide other opportunities for class and individual prayer and students are encouraged to see how the stories in the Bible and of the Saints can direct their own faith journeys. Outside of the classrooms, the library, extended care room and administrative offices on campus display religious pictures and symbols as a reminder that Holy Spirit School is a place of faith and that God is present with us at all times and in all places.
As a school community, we celebrate mass once a week in the church and the students participate in ministries for these masses. During the Lenten season, students participate in the sacrament of Reconciliation with their peers during school hours.
In addition to the religion curriculum taught in all homerooms, second grade students spend their year learning about the sacrament of the Eucharist. With help and support from the Parish, students in grades 3-8 participate in grade level and age appropriate retreat days on site. The 8th grade students take an end of the year retreat at the Presentation Center with their teachers and Parish priests.
Faith formation and guidance on each student’s journey is at the core of what the school and parish staff strive to accomplish at Holy Spirit School.
