Proud to be
Ambassadors for Christ

Faith Life

The religion program at OLPH School, with our mission to instill a firm foundation in our Catholic faith built upon the four pillars of a Catholic education: Faith, Academics, Discipline and Leadership, combines daily formal instruction with an active prayer life to get the best results. Our school motto, “We are called to be Ambassadors for Christ,” fosters core Catholic values that are applied to all aspects of school life. Relevant service opportunities bind the community together as it reminds us to see the importance of helping others. At OLPH School, we prepare the next generation of Catholics to know, love and serve the Lord in an ever-changing world.
