Growing in Faith as His Domestic Church
The purpose of OLM’s Kindergarten – Grade 5 family program is to encounter our Lord as friend in the Scriptures, become strengthened by His love through the Sacraments of Reconciliation and the Eucharist, and to live whole-heartedly as His disciples, attracting new friends to Christ and His Church.
Through our growing bonds of affection, we are committed to the life-long study of our Biblical story of faith, discovering God’s saving love in our sacred texts that are powerfully echoed in the sacred story of our lives.
We believe that our family exploration and celebration of our Catholic faith are essential to grow our experience and knowledge of belonging to Jesus and to respond with joy to the Spirit’s call to serve our brothers and sisters in need.
With hearts longing to abide in God through His Word, Sacraments, and Service, we are compelled to form the next generation of disciples.
