Spiritual Formation

The fundamental purpose of Holy Rosary Catholic School is the same as the Catholic Church- to evangelize. Thus, in instructing and proclaiming the good news, students are given a foundation from which all knowledge flows. It is the formation of the whole child which permits academics to thrive.

Parents are always welcomed and encouraged to participate in supporting school faith formation activities. It is the belief at Holy Rosary Catholic School that parents are the primary educators, and the staff serves as facilitators in this spiritual journey. This is especially important when students are enrolled in Holy Rosary Catholic School during sacramental years.  Holy Rosary Catholic School prepares students for First Reconciliation, First Communion, and Confirmation in second and eighth grade respectively.

Acknowledging mutual values and diverse traditions, Holy Rosary Catholic School prepares children to be enthusiastic and comfortable in their expression of faith and encourages the development of respect and compassion for one another as taught by Jesus Christ.

As part of a student’s spiritual formation, all students attend a morning prayer assembly. Each week students have the opportunity to host and directly participate in the Mass by serving as lectors, altar servers, and presenting gifts. This is also carried over to parish life once a month when Holy Rosary Catholic School students host a Sunday Family Mass at the Church.

In addition, all students participate in religious instruction as a part of their academic pathway. Within this instruction, students are given ample service opportunities. Student Council hosts service projects or fundraisers for charities, students participate in faith families to build ministry connections with the Church, and students perform community service as a part of their religion course. Further, each classroom has a prayer table where the liturgical season is reflected, student prayers are displayed, and sacred items are placed. To further build a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, students are also provided off-campus retreats and excursions.
