As a school grounded in Catholic values, the spiritual lives of each child, teacher and member of the community are held with highest regard. The curriculum includes opportunities for children to consider the role of God in their lives and the ethical and moral underpinnings of a life lived in loving service to others. Classes begin with a prayer, and the school gathers frequently for liturgical services. Though the school is guided by Catholic values, the spiritual diversity of our school community is honored and celebrated. A respect for the spiritual goals of the school is an expectation of all members of the community.
Our hope is that students will build life-long relationships within the communities served, thus fostering a sense of extending themselves beyond The Presentation School.
Liturgies are the religious celebrations of the school. The entire school celebrates monthly liturgies and Para-liturgies. These services allow students and teachers to reflect on the spiritual and ethical teachings of the Church and Gospel Values of love, gratitude, respect, service and integrity. Non-Catholics (All students participate in liturgies and are welcomed and families are invited to attend)
The Presentation school is not a diocesan school, and as such, is not empowered by the Diocese of Santa Rosa to prepare students for the sacraments of Reconciliation, First Holy Communion, or Confirmation. Though students learn about the rites and rituals of the Catholic Church in Faith classes, students must register and prepare for these sacraments in their home parish. Please contact your home parish for information regarding sacramental preparation.
