Prayer Partners

 

The OLPH "Prayer Partner" program pairs older students with younder children.  At weekly Mass, students in grades 5th - 8th are partnered with students in grades Pre-K - 1st and actively play a role in  helping the younger ones by teaching them how to participate.   The program gives our older students an opportunity to gain responsibility as well as keeping them connected to the younger grades.  These students take on a leadership role and work as mentors to the younger students.  They often find it very rewarding and welcome the opportunity.

 

Prayer Partners also allows our younger students to a chance to develop important relationships with our older students.  These relationships can be seen throughout the school, on playground, in our Reading Buddies program and even during lunch hours.  It is not unusual for you to see one of the older students actively engaging with a younger student and providing a helping hand whenever there is a need. 

 

It gives us great pride to see these relationships blossom and grow as our children move through each grade at OLPH.  The Prayer Partner Program is a reflection of our core Christian beliefs and an integral part of the OLPH Catholic School community.
