Our Catholic Faith
St. Stan’s Catholic Identity is the top priority in the school’s planning and operations. The school provides regular opportunities for students to participate in liturgies, religious activities, and service projects. School masses are celebrated weekly. Prayer is integrated throughout the school day, and each school day begins with a prayer. Students in preschool through 8th grade receive religion instruction on a daily basis and our Catholic Foundation is incorporated with The 7 Habits.
Students assist in liturgical celebrations through lecturing, altar serving, and gift presentation. During the year, different classes participate in various projects. The purpose of these projects is to encourage students to be aware of those in need and to practice responding to those needs in compassion.
This curriculum offers daily religious instruction including Catholic doctrine, scripture, morality, lives of the saints, social justice, as well as preparation for Liturgy.
