We are a Catholic community committed to developing educational opportunities in the context of Gospel values, where students' gifts and talents are celebrated and nurtured through lifelong spiritual and personal experiences.
Celebrations and Prayer Assemblies
Our school offers our students Faith celebrations numerous times throughout the month and school masses throughout the school year as we follow the Liturgical seasons. Our students will participate in numerous masses at Our Lady of Perpetual Help (OLPH) parish in Sherwood Park throughout the school year. We also host special school and prayer assemblies based on the liturgical calendar.
Annually, our students will also participate in Adoration with a school-based Mass with an opportunity to pray to Jesus in a unique prayer service as led by school and church staff. At the end of February or early March, we attend Mass at OLPH for Ash Wednesday as we begin the season of Lent. Lent is concluded with our Easter celebration and prayer assembly at school in April. Finally, our students participate in a year-end Mass at OLPH where we celebrate the Good News and the many achievements of our students over the course of the school year. We also say goodbye to our students who are moving on in their educational experiences.
Numerous times throughout the month, our students participate in student-led prayer assemblies where we listen to the Word of God, reflect and pray. This is led by our students from grades 1-8 and is accompanied by music and song. Following each week's prayer assembly, we have student and staff announcements.
