Home About Us Our Faith In Action

Our Faith In Action

Our faith is strong at St. Christopher School! As a Catholic school, we believe that our spiritual foundation is the basis for all that we do to help our students grow into moral, responsible young men and women. Daily religious study, liturgical celebrations, special visitors and events, and service projects combine to make faith an integral part of every day at St. Christopher School.

Religious Education

Every grade receives religious instruction as part of their daily curriculum. In addition, teachers strive to incorporate moral lessons into their everyday interaction with their students, so that students understand our faith is something to be lived, not just studied.

School Liturgies

Masses and prayer services are held at least once a month and on Holy Days. Each mass is completely prepared and presented by a class. In addition, students from throughout the school participate as altar servers, cantors, and musicians. For most masses, our school pastor, Fr. Richard Kelley, is the main celebrant. Parents, parishioners, and other members of our school community are invited to join us at all of our liturgical celebrations. Click to view our School Liturgical Calendar.

Service Projects

At St. Christopher School, we believe that we are called to be active members of our community through service to others. The school participates in a number of service projects throughout the year, including collecting food for the Corpus Christi Food Pantry each week. In addition, the school has an ongoing relationship with a local branch of the Meals on Wheels organization. Each grade "adopts" a Meals on Wheels route for the year and sends them bi-monthly gifts, crafts, and letters. Finally, a number of individual classrooms are involved in additional service projects, including the adoption of military personnel stationed overseas.

Vocation Day

Vocation Day is a once-yearly day devoted to vocations within the church. Priests, deacons, nuns, and lay individuals living out their God-given vocations spend the day at the school and share their vocation stories with the children. The day also includes a mass and an afternoon of special activities.

Faith Outreach Committee

Taking to heart the idea that the best example is by action, this group of parents meets regularly to plan a number of activities to augment the faith of the community at St. Christopher School.
