Faith at Our Lady of Grace School
God is the center and focus of Our Lady of Grace School. Our students explore and understand their faith through academic classes that focus on the scriptures, sacraments, morality, church history and traditions. Catholic Identity is reflected in our school mission, in our SLE’s, throughout the curriculum, our virtue in education program and events that occur throughout the year. Opportunities are provided for reception of the sacraments, retreats, celebrations of the liturgical seasons and prayerful reflection on students’ personal faith journeys.
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. Family members and parishioners are always welcome to join us! The Diocese has mandated that anyone attending Mass on school grounds during the school day will need to complete both Lives Scan Fingerprinting and Safe Haven Training. More information to come on how the school will help familes and parishioners get both items completed.

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.
