Catholic Identity

 

Our Catholic Faith


The mission and philosophy statements of Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic School support strong evangelization through the integration of the Roman Catholic Faith into all aspects of school life.  

Prayer experiences and reception of the Sacraments are abundant. The religion curriculum and teaching methodology are alive and vibrant in classrooms. Religious signs, sacramental, traditions, and rituals of the Roman Catholic Church permeate the entire school culture. Christian service is highly valued and integrated within the entire school community.  

All are actively engaged in bringing the Good News of Jesus into the total education experience and there is an observable vibrancy of faith within the school environment.
