A Catholic school with a rich faith tradition, SFA welcomes students of all beliefs. We strive to help each student develop a deep love of God and a habit of prayer. Beginning with the youngest, students come to know Godthrough a variety of experiences. We hope to provide each of our students with an awareness of God’s presence that will invite them to be builders of God’s Kingdom.
Our 4K-8th grade students attend Mass each week at St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Church on Wednesdays @ 8:15a.m. Our families are always welcome to join us in worship each week.
The sacraments are sacred signs that convey God’s love and grace and blessing for our lives. Sacraments are celebrated through each child’s home parish. All students who are members of St. Francis of Assisi Parish should register for the sacraments during school registration or in the parish office in August each year.First Reconciliation
Our Catholic students celebrate First Reconciliation when they are in the second grade. In the sacrament of reconciliation (also called confession or penance) we express contrition for our sins and are reconciled with God and the church. Parents must attend a meeting about First Reconciliation. This sacrament takes place at St. Francisof Assisi Catholic Church in the fall. First Eucharist
Our Catholic students celebrate the sacrament of the First Eucharist in the spring during the second grade. In the Eucharist, we receive the body and blood of Christ in Holy Communion. Parents must attend a meeting for First Eucharist. Attendance at a “Learning About the Mass” session and a Saturday morning retreat are also required for the student receiving this sacrament.
