Virtues in Practice


Virtues in Practice

Virtues in Practice is a program for children in grades Kindergarten through eight to grow closer to Jesus by imitating His life and virtues. It is set up in such a way that a whole school studies the same virtue each month, to provide a whole-school (and at home, whole-family) focus. The program covers 27 virtues over a three-year cycle, with 81 saints held up as models of the virtues.

All Saints Catholic School teaches these virtues during religion classes and also celebrates virtues through other all-school events throughout each year. The 2022-2023 school year is the Year of Faith.

The Virtues in Practice program features a rotating basis of years: Faith, Hope, and Charity. This school year (2022-2023) we will be celebrating the Year of Faith. Students will be reciting the following prayer throughout the year and we encourage everyone to introduce this prayer into your family’s practice.

Act of Faith

O my God, I firmly believe
that You are one God in three Divine Persons;
Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
I believe that Your Divine Son
became man and died for our sins
and that He will come to judge the living and the dead.
I believe these and all the truths that the
Holy Catholic Church teaches because
You have revealed them,
Who can neither deceive nor be deceived.
