Celebrations of faith are at the heart of the community that is St. Ignatius Parish School. The shared faith is that cohesive element that makes the school a community.
The student body gathers in prayer to begin each week at the Monday morning assembly. The students share very personal intentions, confident that their peers will hold them in their prayers. During the liturgical season of Lent the children exchange names and pray for their prayer partner. Each grade plans and participates in a Mass for the school children. Many parents attend these liturgies and there is a true sense of community and shared beliefs. The classes receive the sacrament of Reconciliation during the seasons of Lent and Advent. The teams pray before athletic events, and parents pray before meetings. Prayer is the beginning of each day and the end of each day. Prayer is the comfortable language that is spoken by everyone who is a part of this school community.
Anyone who would like to volunteer their time at school, on a field trip, or any activity that involves our students, MUST complete an on line course provided by LawRoom and our Safe Environment for Children Program.
THIS TRAINING IS MANDATED AND A PROOF OF CERTIFICATE MUST BE PRESENTED TO THE SCHOOL OFFICE BEFORE YOU MAY VOLUNTEER TO PARTICIPATE IN ANY SCHOOL EVENTS/FUNCTIONS WHERE CHILDREN ARE PRESENT. This training must be renewed EVERY 3 years.
