OMC Parish School prides itself on educating the whole student: academically, emotionally and spirituality. Part of that is our Call to Service, and our school minister works with teachers to incorporate the Works of Mercy and other service activities into classroom lessons. Throughout the year there are additional opportunities for service outside of the school day which you can find below. We look forward to seeing you at some of our upcoming events.
