The atmosphere of a Catholic school should reflect the spirit of Christian life and learning. We offer our students a program of spiritual activities which add and enrich the scholastic life. Catholic doctrine is presented in each grade in a relevant and meaningful manner.
The liturgical year is developed through opportunities for attending Mass and receiving the sacraments. In all spiritual activities, OLQM recognizes that parents also play an important role in the moral and spiritual training of the child. Parental example is the key factor for the spiritual development of the child.
Each grade level worships God through planned liturgies. Students in Grades 1-8 attend Mass once a week. All grades attend Mass on Holy Days and other special occasions throughout the school year. Parents are invited to join the students in these Eucharistic celebrations.
Sacramental Preparation Program
Our Lady Queen of Martyrs Parish provides opportunities for students to prepare for and receive the sacraments of Holy Eucharist, Reconciliation, and Confirmation within the Catholic community of prayer and worship.
First Holy Communion (Eucharist) is ordinarily received in the second grade
Sacrament of Reconciliation is ordinarily received in the second grade.
Sacrament of Confirmation is celebrated in the eighth grade.
Preparation for the celebration of these sacraments is a joint effort of parents and religious education staff. Periodic meetings and activities are scheduled throughout the year.
