Faith Formation for OLS Students
THE CATHOLIC DIOCESE OF BIRMINGHAM IN ALABAMA
Our Lady of Sorrows Catholic School is a private school under the direction of the Catholic Diocese of Birmingham in Alabama. We believe as a unified congregation to follow the Catholic teachings of Rome. As stated in the Catholic Diocesan Preamble:
“We are the Catholic Church of Birmingham, Alabama. We are responding to God’s call to proclaim Jesus Christ as the Eternal Son of the living God. We are witnesses to the Gospel as we announce the death of the Lord, proclaim His resurrection, and await His coming in glory. At the heart of our Christian Community is celebration: of the Word, of the Eucharist, of the Sacraments. We journey with the Holy Spirit as our guide, with Mary, the Mother of God as our model, and in communion with the Holy Father, the Bishop of Rome.”
Our school liturgy is based on a specific schedule led by a different class each week. The students take pride in preparing and leading the school-wide Mass.
Adoration of the Holy Eucharist occurs on the First Friday of each month.
We pray together each morning and afternoon as a school community.
Second-grade students participate in sacramental preparation for the celebration of First Reconciliation and First Holy Communion. Eighth-grade students study and prepare for the Sacrament of Confirmation.
