Our Mother Of Good Counsel School

Religious Teaching

Religious Teaching

All of our students take an active part in the Church community by attending Mass and a prayer service once a month. Students are involved in special services during Advent and Lent. The 8th grade students lead the students in the Stations of the Cross during Lent and re-enact them for the school community during Holy Week.

In May the school holds a May crowning for the Blessed Mother led by the Grade 2 and Grade 8 classes.

In Second grade the students prepare for the reception of Reconciliation and Eucharist which takes place in December and April. Students in the older grades who have not received these sacraments are given the opportunity to participate as well.

Each class also is responsible for an assigned Service project. The service projects are aligned with the Corporal Works of Mercy. Through these projects the students learn what it means to be a Catholic citizen of the World.
