Faith at St. Mary Help of Christians School
At St. Mary Help of Christians School, our foundation is built upon the principles of embracing God's love and extending that love to others. This core belief guides us to foster an atmosphere of encouragement and responsibility, shaping both our words and actions. Our commitment extends beyond education; it encompasses a profound dedication to service, as we honor the unique potential of every student. Aligned with the words ``Trust in the Lord with all your heart,`` our students embark on a transformative journey of growth, harnessing their God-given talents to make meaningful contributions within their classroom, their homes, and the wider community. Welcoming students at every stage of their faith journey, we create a supportive environment where they flourish and thrive in the light of divine guidance.
In Everything We Do
Faith isn’t something that we do, it’s who we are. We are lead by Jesus’ example, and do our best to follow in His footsteps.
“By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” John 13:35
At St. Mary Help of Christians School, we celebrate the Eucharist!
We celebrate mass weekly. By classroom, students take turns planning and participating in the liturgies.
Students who are not of the Catholic faith are invited to attend and participate.
Absolution of sins can be so refreshing and powerful! Our students take part in the Sacrament of Reconciliation twice per school year.
We respect the faith of our non-Catholic students, and they will not be asked to take part in Reconciliation.
We believe in the power of prayer, and we talk to God like we’d talk to our best friend. We begin each day with prayer, have prayer boards in our hallways for special intentions, and pray the rosary throughout the year. We pray because God promises He hears our prayers.
