Faith at Our Lady of Grace School
Our curriculum includes gospel values, devotional traditions and practices of the Roman Catholic Church
All Our Lady of Grace students belong to a Faith Family. Each family includes students from virtually all grade levels and an OLG teacher. Families work together throughout the year in Faith Family activities, sit together at Mass and learn about the liturgical seasons. Family members support each other throughout the year and form special friendships across grade-levels.
Students at Our Lady of Grace who are Baptized and have had at least 2 years of Sacramental Preparation may participate in Sacramental Celebrations. Most students at OLG receive Sacraments of Reconciliation and First Communion in second grade and Confirmation in Eighth Grade. Celebrations take place at OLG Parish Church in conjunction with the children participating in the Parish Sacramental Preparation programs.
Our Lady of Grace students participate in a variety of Mass settings:
All School Masses-All students attend Mass in the hall on scheduled Fridays and on other days of obligation. Students gather in their Faith Families for All School Masses
Chapel Masses-Individual Classes attend Mass in the OLG Chapel on scheduled Fridays
Family Masses-Students attend scheduled OLG School family Masses on the weekends.
Family members and parishioners are always welcome to join us!
Our Lady of Grace Catholic students in third through eighth grade are invited to serve as altar servers for Our Lady of Grace Parish Church and School. OLG students assist the priests at weekend and school Masses. Altar Server training is offered by Our Lady of Grace Parish each year and al Catholic students are encouraged to participate and become a leader in their faith.
The Our Lady of Grace Campus Ministry's mission is to share the Catholic values of faith, love, and service with Our Lady of Grace School and community. OLG student and faculty members meet weekly to plan many schoolwide events that focus on our Catholic faith. The group plans prayer services, service projects, and lead their peers in faith-filled activities.
OLG May Crowning
Each year in the month of May Our Lady of Grace students participate in a May Crowning Celebration to honor Blessed Mother Mary. OLG students who recently received First Communion wear their Sunday best and lead the procession and the entire student body participates.
