FAITH

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.

In 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

The entire school also attends Mass on Holy Days of Obligation and for special occasions. Prayer services are held in the classroom, with groups of classes and for the entire school at various times throughout the year.

During their time at our school, students will receive two Holy Sacraments. In second grade, students have their first Reconciliation, and third graders celebrate their first Holy Communion.

Students of all ages receive a Guardian Angel pendant during a special ceremony after Mass each October. Our eight graders go on a spiritual retreat and discuss articles from Northwest Indiana Catholic. In addition, we celebrate St. Lucy Day and we have a Saint Nicholas Celebration.

Non-Catholic students will participate.
