Faith

The school day begins with Morning Prayer and announcements as students gather in our gymnasium. A focus on faith continues throughout the day with formal prayers at lunch and dismissal, but spontaneous opportunities during the day celebrate successes, share burdens and connect students with Catholics around the world.



Weekly Mass on Fridays and Holy Days of Obligation give students an opportunity to participate in ministries such as lector, choir and hospitality. Prayer services celebrate many special occasions during our Church year and are frequently led by students. Older students are paired with younger students for prayer partner activities to foster faith and community building.



Our patron, St. Thomas More, is honored for his integrity and devotion to his family. St. Thomas More served Henry VIII, King of England as his Chancellor for three years. He was martyred for his faith after opposing the King’s divorce and establishment of the Church of England with Henry as its head. Our mission is to help children develop personal integrity, compassion and the courage to live their Catholic faith.
