“Ask and you will receive; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks, receives; and the one who seeks, finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened” (Mt. 7:7-8). Here at St. Francis of Assisi Catholic School we understand the importance of prayer in the spiritual formation of a child and provide a Christ-centered education that focuses on the formation of the whole child; spiritually, intellectually, physically and emotionally. Each school day begins and ends with prayer, placing every child in touch with God, their creator who loves them unconditionally. We believe prayer is the foundation and springboard to success when combined with hard work. Prayers of praise, thanksgiving, intercession open the minds and hearts of our students, both mentally and vocally to God’s plan for their lives. Prayer instills in them a love for God and neighbor.
The entire school comes together for the celebration of the Holy Mass once a week. They are provided with opportunities to pray the rosary, the Angelus, Divine Mercy Chaplet, spend time in Eucharistic Adoration and to receive the sacrament of reconciliation on a regular basis. It is our hope that once they leave St. Francis School they will continue to practice their faith, keep strengthening their relationship with God and become role models in their communities. We welcome to our school students of all faiths. We trust that every student at St. Francis School is brought here by Christ and His mother, Blessed Virgin Mary. “Let the Children come to me, and do not hinder them; for to such belongs the kingdom of heaven.” (Mt. 19:14)
