Students in grades 1-8 attend Mass each Thursday morning at 8:30am. A select Cantor Ensemble leads school liturgies, which are coordinated with the Parish Director of Music. After Christmas of each year, kindergarteners join the rest of the school for Mass.
The Eucharist is a banquet to which Jesus personally invites us. It was Christ’s last gift to us before He died. We hope to impress this upon our students as they grow in their faith.
In Diocesan schools, Christian Family Life Education is a process of on-going education from preschool through high school. Its objective is to develop in students an appreciation of life in all forms as God’s greatest gift and to strengthen positive attitudes. In our school, Family Life Education is an integral part of the curriculum; therefore, all students are required to participate in the program.
The Rosary is a special set of of prayers to God that help us to remember the most important events in the lives of Mary and Jesus. These events are called the Mysteries. There are 20 Mysteries in total. Five are called the Joyful Mysteries, five are called The Luminous Mysteries, five are called The Sorrowful Mysteries and five are called The Glorious Mysteries.
These Mysteries are stories about the lives of Mary and Jesus. Each group of Mysteries relates to one group of ten beads on the Rosary. This ten group of beads is called a decade.
If you are interested in joining the Rosary Group at OLQA, please contact Kathleen Neilsen at [email protected] or (949) 701-8137.
Advent Season at OLQA is a beautiful time of year. All students perform in a school-wide Christmas program as well as individual grade performances during school liturgies. Grades K-4 participate in a Christmas Luncheon in the hall to celebrate the Advent Season.
