Formed in Faith
Catholic traditions and Gospel values are an integral part of St. Mary Help of Christians Catholic School's educational program. Students are formed in the Faith through daily prayer and weekly Religion classes taught three days a week. Students attend Mass once a week and receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation during Advent and Lent. Students also participate in special schoolwide prayer services and Holy Days of Obligations. Students are encouraged, motivated and challenged to become:
