Faith at St. Katharine Drexel
At St. Katharine Drexel, we often ask ourselves (and each other), ``What would Jesus do?`` Our answer is always the same: ``He would love first.`` With that motto in mind, we foster a foundation of faith, service, and love in our school. Our teachers lead by example, integrating Christ-centered principles into student's daily education experience. We love seeing students love first and grow in Christ. While we're a Catholic school, we welcome students and families of all faith backgrounds.
In Everything We Do
Faith isn’t something that we do, it’s who we are. We are lead by Jesus’ example, and do our best to follow in His footsteps.
“By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” John 13:35
At SKD, we celebrate the Eucharist!
We celebrate mass weekly. By classroom, students take turns planning and participating in the liturgies.
Students who are not of the Catholic faith are invited to attend and participate, but traditionally asked not to take the Eucharist.
Absolution of sins can be so refreshing and powerful! Our students take part in the Sacrament of Reconciliation twice per school year.
We respect the faith of our non-Catholic students, and they will not be asked to take part in Reconciliation.
We believe in the power of prayer, and we talk to God like we’d talk to our best friend. We pray as a school each afternoon, we have prayer boards in our hallways for special intentions, and we pray the rosary throughout the year. We pray because God promises He hears our prayers.
