Faith & Service



At St. Mary Hales Corners Parish School, faith is fundamental to all that we do at our school to aid in our spiritual growth.

Mass at St. Mary

The Holy Sacrifice of the Mass is an integral part of the faith life here at St. Mary Parish. All-school Masses are offered each Tuesday and on Holy Days to celebrate the unity of our Catholic faith. Different grade levels help prepare various Masses and participate in Mass and serving. 

First Holy Communion and Reconciliation

The sacraments of Reconciliation and First Holy Communion are received by our 2nd Graders. Second through eighth grade students are offered the sacrament of reconciliation during Advent and Lent.

Lenten Commitments

Our All-School Lenten cross reflects the growth toward God that we are hoping for through our prayer, fasting, and almsgiving this Lent.  Beginning on Ash Wednesday, students nail their Lenten commitments to the cross.  




At St. Mary Hales Corners Parish School, we live in a Christ-centered environment.  As such, community service is fundamental to all that we do at our school.

Community Service

Along with our commitment to quality education, we will highlight the importance of community service and the understanding of Catholic Social Teachings. Each class will work with our parish ministry partners to ensure that
service is embedded in our academic program.
