Finding faith woven into the fabric of every classroom our Catholic beliefs are central to each student’s experience at Saint Giles. Through prayer and study of our faith we seek to develop an awareness of the dignity of all people and a moral compass that will help guide student’s decisions throughout their lives. The foundation for a vibrant faith life is created by preparing students for First Reconciliation, First Communion, and Confirmation with their classmates in second and eighth grade.
Students begin and end the day with prayer and attend Mass once a week. Each trimester every grade participates in a Great Grade Mass in which the students’ families and special friends are invited to join us at Mass and time to visit together as a community. Grade Buddies prepare monthly All School Masses to celebrate important times in our faith such as All Saints Day and May Crowning.
Throughout the year classes explore and grow in their understanding of Social Justice by participating in class organized efforts to help those in need. Students participate at local charities such as Feed My Starving Children, and collecting toys at Christmas, food for local pantries, and pet supplies for local shelters. Students learn to be stewards of the earth through green initiatives like our zero waste lunch program. They are active in parish life by singing in the children’s choir and being altar servers.
Saint Giles is a welcoming community respecting all faiths. Students from a variety of faiths are a valued and vital part of our school community.
