At St. Gabriel School, the religious formation of students is of prime importance.
Religion classes are held daily.
Students in grades 1-8 attend Mass each Wednesday, and also on Holy Days.
Students in JrK and K attend Liturgy of the Word at the Church every week and learn about the Mass. They join us for weekly Mass the second half of the year.
Students periodically help plan and attend prayer services and paraliturgies that relate to their studies, seasonal celebrations, or school events. A spirit of prayer throughout the school and classrooms and participation in activities of service and mission service projects are promoted.
Students also have the opportunity to learn the serving attitude of Christ for others in several other activities such as Student Council, the Eighth Grade/First Grade partner program, and the required Service Program for students in Grades Seven and Eight.
The sacraments of Reconciliation and Eucharist are received for the first time in the Second Grade.
The religion curriculum provides for deep and careful preparation in these areas. Students in Grades Three through Eight are given the opportunity during each year to receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation.
