At our school, we believe that parents are the first examples of faith for their children, and that our school should be an extension of the Christian home. Believing this, here at St. Wendelin Catholic School, we will assist parents in teaching Christian values, Catholic doctrine, and concerns for peace and justice.
In Everything We Do
Faith isn’t something that we do, it’s who we are. We are lead by Jesus’ example, and do our best to follow in His footsteps.
“By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” John 13:35
At St. Wendelin, we celebrate the Eucharist!
We celebrate mass weekly. By classroom, students take turns planning and participating in the liturgies.
Students who are not of the Catholic faith are invited to attend and participate, but traditionally asked not to take the Eucharist.
Absolution of sins can be so refreshing and powerful! Our students take part in the Sacrament of Reconciliation twice per school year.
We respect the faith of our non-Catholic students, and they will not be asked to take part in Reconciliation.
Catechesis of the Good Shepherd
CGS is a common religious experience involving children and adults in which the religious values of childhood, primarily those values of contemplation and enjoyment of God, are predominant.
This experience is shared within St. Wendelin’s School, a place particularly prepared for the religious life of children.
We believe in the power of prayer, and we talk to God like we’d talk to our best friend. We begin each day with prayer, have prayer boards in our hallways for special intentions, and pray the rosary throughout the year. We pray because God promises He hears our prayers.
