Our teachers work closely with our principal and assistant principal, and with parents of OLM students to help instill the beliefs and traditions of our Catholic Faith. Through the daily Religion classes that all students attend, our children continue on their journey to grow as disciples of Jesus Christ. By providing activities and opportunities to practice patience, kindness, compassion, service, respect, and love for one another, our students learn to treat themselves and others as Jesus would.
Prayer thru Morning Assembly
From the beginning of each school morning, through the daily lessons and activities at school, to the end of each school day, our children have opportunities for prayer. These include memorized or spontaneous prayers, Bible verses, and special intentions of the day. As an entire school body, we pray the rosary during the March-for-Life and May Crowning of our Blessed Mother, Mary.
During the school year, Fr. Doming Orimaco and Father Gabriel, along with the help of a designated class, lead the celebration of school mass every Wednesday. All students in kindergarten through 8th grade along with their classroom teachers attend the weekly masses. Parishioners and OLM families are encouraged to join us for the celebration of mass. In the instance of a holy day of obligation falling during a school week, the date of the morning school mass is changed accordingly.
For our OLM second-graders (and students in the OLM Religious Ed Program) who are beginning their preparation for receiving the Sacraments of Reconciliation and Holy Eucharist, and for the 8th Graders who will later receive the sacrament of Confirmation, our students learn about Church teachings and truths to help them uphold and explain our Catholic faith to others.
