Mass and Prayer Services

One of the primary objectives of education at St. Paul the Apostle Catholic School is to hand on the Faith and to lead students into a living relationship with Jesus Christ.  In order to accomplish this goal, more is required than simply religion class.

Mass-Holy mass is celebrated with the entire school weekly; each mass involves planning and participation by a particular homeroom.  Parents/guardians are cordially invited and encouraged to attend these liturgies.  Pre-school and pre-kindergarten do not attend.

Rosary-The Rosary is prayed several times during the school year in order to lead the children to devotion toward the Blessed Virgin Mary.  This rosary is adapted to the children's level through an explanation of the mysteries and a "living rosary" format.

Stations of the Cross-During Lent students share in the Lord's journey to the Cross by praying the Stations of the Cross on Fridays of Lent.  Eighth grade students lead this devotion.
