As a Catholic school, Our Lady of Talpa School is a ministry of the Catholic Church. The education we provide is an expression of the mission Jesus entrusted to the Church He founded. Our main purpose is to spread the Good News in word and action so our children, with God’s help, will strive to transform themselves and the world.
Our Lady of Talpa School’s Catholic faith is present in our classroom atmosphere, how we instruct and guide each student, and our proclamation of the Gospel. Prayer and religion are an integral part of our school day and classroom routines.
As a school community, we participate in prayer services, monthly all-school Masses, monthly Sunday family Masses and special events that are focused on learning from and celebrating our Vincentian founders. Our students help plan all Masses and events.
In all we do, we strive to provide a faith-filled environment where our students can develop spiritually. We nurture our students to be active Catholics who have a relationship with Jesus and the Church, and who serve and respect their neighbors with peace and love.
Our Lady of Talpa School follows the Liturgical Calendar, which is posted throughout our building, and provides preparation for the Sacraments of First Eucharist and First Reconciliation.
We offer the Sacrament of Reconciliation to our students at Advent and Lent, and we offer the Sacrament of Eucharist at monthly school Masses.
