Spiritual Enrichment

Saint Paul School provides multiple opportunities for each student’s spiritual enrichment, both Catholic and non-Catholic.

Sacramental Preparation
St. Paul School partners with families in preparing students to receive the sacraments as part of their Catholic education. Through in-school religious instruction, all children learn about the Sacraments. Reconciliation and First Communion are received in the 2nd Grade. Preparation for Confirmation begins in 7th Grade with religious instruction and community service and Confirmation is received in the 8th grade. Non-Catholic students partake in religious instruction and community service projects.

Prayer & Religious Services
In addition to the Pledge of Allegiance, prayer and reflection are a part of the school day. Students are chosen daily to help lead the school community in prayer and make special announcements. Catholic students participate in first Friday Masses, Holy Days, and religious services. Parents are always welcome to attend.

Padre’s Pals
Students in grades 3 through 8 may volunteer for Padre’s Pals. This group is taught how to properly set up and break-down the Altar and all the components for in-school Masses and services. This group also receives Altar Server training for in-school Masses/liturgies.

In-School Choir
In addition to regularly scheduled weekly music classes, students in grades 3-8 have the option of joining the In-school Choir. Under the direction of Sr. Angela, children are taught religious music for In-school liturgies. There is no fee and practices are during school hours only.
