Tiger Student Life

Faith and Service

Service is an extension of our faith. SMCS Tigers engage in school-wide and grade-level service projects to help their communities. Whether it's delivering pies to local sick and shut-in, collecting canned goods for a food drive, singing Christmas songs to the elderly or participating in May Crowning, our faith is always at the center of all we do at SMCS.

Service learning projects teach our Tigers the importance of giving back to help the community. Prayer, faith, and compassion are all integral parts of what we teach our Tigers.

Sacramental Preparation

The spiritual life of the child is nurtured at the school, at liturgical celebrations in the parish, and within the family. However, it is your own parish, not the school, which is responsible for the immediate preparation of the sacraments. This preparation may include retreats, workshops, rites, parent meetings, sacramental preparation sessions and rehearsals and eventually, the sacramental celebration itself.

Please register your children in the sacramental programs offered at your parish with the understanding that the final phase of preparation does not occur at school. Registration times vary from parish to parish, so parents should contact the Sacramental Coordinator in their parish, two years prior to the sacramental year.

Prayer of
St. Michael

St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle, be our defense against the wickedness and snares of the devil; may God rebuke him, we humbly pray, and do thou O Prince of the heavenly hosts, by the Divine Power, thrust into hell satan and all the evil spirits who prowl about the world seeking the ruin of souls. Amen.
