    Religion

    Christian formation in the gospel values, community service, and self-discipline prepares Catholic school students for the challenges they face today and will in the future. A firm understanding of the Catholic faith is vital to the spiritual well-being of Catholics. For over 50 years, Our Lady of Victory Catholic School has been effectively educating young people in the Catholic faith.
     
    Religion class is taught 4 days a week to all students in grades K-8. OLVCS uses the Bible, the Catechism of the Catholic Church, and the Alive in Christ religion series (Our Sunday Visitor).  This comprehensive textbook series is aligned with the Catechism of the Catholic Church.
     
    OLVCS students attend Mass once a week at Our Lady of Victory Catholic Church, usually on Wednesdays at 9AM. At this Mass, OLVCS students serve as readers, altar servers, and greeters, as well as fulfill other duties for the Mass.  Parents and family members are welcome to attend school Masses. Throughout the school year students will also go to church on Holy Days of Obligation, receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation, participate in the Stations of the Cross, Rosary, and May Crowning, as well as other devotions and prayer services.
     
    Throughout the course of the year, OLVCS students put Catholic social teaching into action by participating in a variety of service projects.  These projects are often done in conjunction with the Jared Box Project, St. Vincent de Paul Society, Catholic Charities, and Catholic Relief Services.  All OLVCS students contribute to class-specific service projects in conjunction with the celebration of OLV Day and to other school-wide projects throughout the year.  Each OLVCS Middle School student personally volunteers at least 20 hours per school year.
