St. Wenceslaus Catholic School enriches students in the Catholic faith while promoting academic excellence, responsibility to self, and service to others.
Christ is at the center of everything that we do at St. Wenceslaus. Our students pray as a school community daily, go to Mass each week and participate in religion classes. Students also have the opportunity to go to Reconciliation, participate in Adoration, Benediction and Stations of the Cross, attend prayer services and plan class liturgies. Students celebrate Mary in the month of October by praying the rosary together and again in May when we honor Mary and crown her during our May Crowning ceremony. The liturgical seasons of Advent and Lent are observed with classroom activities and prayer. The Pastor, priests and deacons visit the classrooms weekly. They take an active role in preparing our students to be children of God and to share their faith with others.
Students in second grade receive the sacraments of Reconciliation and First Holy Communion. In seventh grade, students begin their preparation for Confirmation, and in eighth grade they receive the Sacrament of Confirmation.
Our spiritual theme for the year is, “Growing in Our Faith.” As a school community and on a personal level, we will reflect on our relationship with God and explore ways to grow in our faith.
Every year the leaders of our school, the 8th grade students, create a school prayer. This prayer is posted in each classroom and recited each morning as a school community.
St. Wenceslaus School Prayer by the Class of 2017:
St. Wenceslaus, humble and merciful guardian of our school, be the light in our day and the fire in our hearts. Keep our souls free from sin and empower us to grow on our journey of faith as we become fishers of men. Through the wisdom of the Holy Spirit we pray, Amen.
