As part of our "Prayer Partner" program, each preschool-3rd grade student is paired with an older student in grades 4-8. Prayer partners sit together at weekly Mass, where the older students teach the younger students how to participate. There are also several events through out the year when partners meet to read a story together or work on a craft.
This gives the younger student a role model to look up to. It also gives older students an opportunity to mentor and build a sense of leadership. Prayer partners help form a Christian community that integrates the whole school.
