Community & Faith Life

There are a variety of ways Sacred Hearts School teaches about Faith and Community, whether it be in individual classrooms, at school gatherings, or out in the community.

Liturgies & Prayer Services

Students attend all school mass once a week on Wednesday. Each grade takes a turn planning liturgies, with the students doing much of the preparation and implementation of the celebration. Sacred Hearts School is blessed to have a parish priest and a parochial vicar to celebrate masses and be an integral part of student life. The St. Albert's Parish priest will sometimes concelebrate special liturgies.

Building Community

One Friday a month, the school gathers in the gym to start the week off in prayer, special announcements, and "good news" at an event entitled "Bruno Wrap Up". These gatherings are a great community builder and give us time to recognize all the good things that are going on with individuals and our school as a whole. Students have "buddies" from other grade levels and do various activities together throughout the year.

Community Service

Faculty, staff and students are involved in a wide variety of community service opportunities. From individual classroom service programs to all school community service events, each child has the opportunity in small and large ways, to make a positive impact on their world. Within the school community, students from the 5th grade on have the opportunity to become altar servers for school (and parish) Masses. Many classrooms do individual service projects, such as the 7th grade Tiny Tim Project, or sending holiday cards to nursing homes. During Advent, the entire school works on projects serving the needs of the Sun Prairie community. In the season of Lent, the school targets one or two global projects that impact our world in a positive way. Our hope is that these valuable experiences give our children the foundation to carry on service to their community and world as they grow into compassionate, giving adults.

 

Mission Statement

We, at Sacred Hearts School, believe that as members of a Catholic community, students will witness to and experience the love of God in a warm and caring atmosphere. This environment provides learning experiences which allow each child the opportunity for personal growth. The family, school, and parish work as partners in this endeavor.
