Our Catholic faith develops a loving relationship with God through service to others. Service is a key component to the mission of Cardinal Pacelli. Student service is focused within our school, parish and local community. We always begin the school day with prayer and participate in the planning and celebration of liturgies and prayer services throughout the year. Grades K-8 come together to celebrate mass weekly.
Students learn about our Catholic faith through prayer and the study of Scripture, Catholic doctrine, and Catholic traditions. The students prepare for the sacraments of Reconciliation, First Holy Communion and Confirmation. Students, parents and teachers participate in retreats to develop community within our parish and school.
The curriculum exposes students to Catholic Church teachings and helps them understand that it is from seeking and following the will of God, that we attain true joy in this life. The emphasis of the Religion program in the 2nd grade is the Sacrament of Reconciliation and First Communion, and is Confirmation in grades 7 and 8.
Service opportunities and journaling build an awareness of our Christian call to serve others. Throughout the grade levels there are leadership opportunities in Masses and school prayer gatherings, enabling our students to gain the tools for evangelizing others about our faith.
