Student Life

Sacramental Life

Overbrook School roots children in Truth, inspires them to wonder and challenges them to give their best to the world. That’s the promise all faculty and staff make to each other, to their students, and to the larger community. The heart of that promise is found in the sacramental life encouraged at Overbrook.

We're proud of our strong academics and love the community our students, families, faculty, and staff share and act out that love each week in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. Held weekly and open to our families and friends, the Mass is attended by our students, our faculty, and by our volunteer altar servers. We invite you to join us each Friday at 8:00 a.m.
 
Community prayers begin and end each day at Overbrook. Through time at our chapel, daily adoration on our campus, in our Atrium, school-wide adoration on the first Friday of every month, and in personal devotion, every student is encouraged to grow and strengthen their relationship with the Lord.

Through the example of the Dominican Sisters of St Cecilia who founded and still operate Overbrook school, students are shown how to live by the four pillars of the Dominican charism: prayer, study, community, and preaching.

    Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name; Thy kingdom come; Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen.
  • Act Contrition

    O My God, I am heartily sorry for having offended you and I detest all my sins because of your just punishments, but most of all because they offend you, my God, who are all good and deserving of all my love. I firmly resolve with the help of your grace to sin no more and to avoid the near occasions of sin. Amen.

    Angel of God, my guardian dear, to whom God’s love commits me here; ever this day be at my side, to light and guard, to rule and guide. Amen.
