Spiritual Formation

But someone will say, “You have faith and I have works.”  Show me your faith apart from your works, and I will show you my faith by my works.
James 2:18

Spiritual Formation

Enriching The Soul Of Each Child

The first purpose of South Hills Catholic Academy is to draw students into a living relationship with Jesus Christ, and through Him to a clearer understanding of the content of our curriculum.

This formation finds its foundation in the Church’s Sacramental life. We envision having the regular presence of a priest whose ministry of offering Christ in the Eucharist, Reconciliation, traditional Catholic devotions and Spiritual Direction will make Jesus Christ present daily to our students.

Everyday the academy will offer points of entry to a life in Christ through: 

  • Regular Prayer – Morning Prayer, Noon Angelus, Grace before Meals, etc.

  • Weekday Masses – Offered Several Times Each Week

  • Weekly Eucharistic Adoration

  • Regular Opportunities for Confession

  • Seasonal Devotions (i.e.Stations of the Cross, May Crowning, etc.)

  • Miraculous Medal Novena

  • Age Appropriate Service Opportunities

Non-Catholic children will participate in the spiritual / faith formation program of the academy to the degree allowable, with the hope that they will be moved to freely ask to become members of the Catholic Faith.

A Prayer to Our Patroness

Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal

O Virgin Mother of God, Mary Immaculate,

We dedicate and consecrate ourselves to you under the title of Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal. May this Medal be for each one of us a sure sign of your affection for us and a constant reminder of our duties toward you.

Ever while wearing it, may we be blessed by your loving protection and preserved in the grace of your Son.

O Most Powerful Virgin, Mother of Our Savior, keep us close to you every moment of our lives. Obtain for us, your children, the grace of a happy death; so that in union with you, we may enjoy the bliss of Heaven forever.
