Spiritual Formation

SH-Praying-Cross_300Sacred Heart students strengthen their beliefs and their relationship with God through daily prayer, retreats, prayerful experiences, scripture readings, and participation in monthly liturgical celebrations. They also use their gifts and talents in Christian service to others by participating in the various ministries of the Church, such as altar servers, lectors, ushers, musicians, and choir members.

Our educational program, permeated by Catholic teachings and values, further enhances the individual’s self esteem through the development of the whole person to become a mature adult who is a positive, contributing member in the church and society. As such, they use their gifts and talents when they take responsibility to work towards the welfare and rights of others. Students participate in National Prayer Week and collect money for the Holy Childhood Association (HCA). They also participate in school related projects like Koins for Kids, a special collection for tuition assistance within our Dominican schools.

Our entire student body participates in our monthly liturgical celebrations and prayer services throughout the year.


At the primary level, second and third grade students are instructed in the doctrines and teachings of the Church, in particular as they relate to the Sacrament of Reconciliation and Holy Eucharist. In this way they prepare to receive these sacraments and become more active participants in the life of the Church.
