March for Life

photo-28We are proud to announce that Our Lady of Charity School will be present at the March for Life in Washington D.C. Four of our 8th grade leaders, Kayla, Elizabeth, Salvador, and Daniel will make the trip alongside our middle school teacher, Mr. Priest, and students from across the Archdiocese. The group will join other young people throughout the nation to spread the message that every life is sacred.

While in Washington, our students will be able to celebrate mass with the Cardinal, visit the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception, and participate in the March. This is a special way for students to live out their Catholic faith and proclaim our beliefs to others.

We would like to extend a special note of appreciation to all school families and parishioners who have supported the students through their donations and who will attend the March for Life breakfast on Sunday, January 11th. Thank you for making this experience possible.

   

Home Reading Strategies

Check out one of our great videos showcasing ways parents can work at home with their children to strengthen reading skills:

 

Faith Buddies

pk8th_picStudents at Our Lady of Charity work together to strengthen each other's faith lives. Each older grade student acts as a faith buddy to a younger child. Classrooms meet once a week so the students can pray together, talk to each other about their love of the Lord, read together, and participate in a variety of fun activities. Many times, students even get to work with their siblings and cousins as faith buddies.

Our students love working together with their brothers and sisters in Christ to learn more about their faith and to praise God.
