One of the cornerstones of our school is our Catholic faith, and
we nurture the spirituality of each child through a variety of
activities: religious education is part of our curriculum and
is considered a core subject, we begin each school day by reciting
a Character Pledge , Morning Offering prayer and the Act of Contrition.
We end each day by reciting the Lord’s Prayer.
addition, the celebration of liturgies plays a vital role in the
life of SPCS students. Students attend Mass twice each week and
actively participate in the Mass by serving as readers, hymn leaders
and Alter servers, presenting the Gifts and reading the petitions.
Our Mass schedule is:
Wednesday Grades 5-8
Thursday Grades K-4
Friday Grades K-8
