Atrium is a special opportunity children to grow in his or her relationship with Jesus, the Good Shepherd. It supplements the homeroom religion class by giving children an opportunity to spend time reflecting on the Word of God and the Mass in a way that brings their faith experience from the head to the heart.
Students in the atrium participate in weekly sessions where we learn about practical life which prepares us to participate more fully in the Mass; rites, articles, and gestures of the Mass and Sacraments; how to read the Bible; and geography and scripture study related to the life of Jesus and the parables He taught.
Please feel free to communicate with me at any time regarding your child’s formation or your ability to be a part of our experience by reaching me at my school email address, firstname.lastname@example.org. It is a privilege when you pray with us.
