Catholic Identity at St. Vincent Pallotti Catholic School in Milwaukee, WI

Catholic Identity

The atmosphere of St. Vincent Pallotti Catholic School seeks to inspire in its students and faculty the awareness that God is in all. We are much more than academics, arts, and athletics. ‘Let all be received as Christ’ names the visible acceptance and hospitality we work to extend to all who come.

At St. Vincent Pallotti Catholic School we strive daily to be an example of life lived, and study pursued for a unique purpose. We want young people to know that they possess inherent dignity, and that each one of them has been born for a special design by God. We want them to experience a rich and positive community life that they help to build. We live an active spiritual life with the students of our school.

We try to model the love of Christ in the daily life of our school. We do this through the true pursuit of knowledge, love of neighbor, and a life of prayer.

We join together each morning for prayer, as we sing praise, hear the Word of God, and pray with and for one another.

Retreats at St. Vincent Pallotti Catholic School in Milwaukee, WI

Retreats

Retreats provide space. Time to reflect is an important part of being human. When we come away to pause, to look, to listen, we gain perspective and insight that enhances our work, our talents, and our relationships.

With the crowds and the demands that Jesus attracted, we know that he went into the desert, or to quiet places to pray. Retreat time is a special time for prayer and reflection. It is a time to slow down and take in the many moments of our lives. On a retreat we can enrich the meaning we see in the joys and struggles of being human. We can feel the pull of God to be open and to be close to God.

At St. Vincent Pallotti Catholic School every student makes a retreat each year. The four year olds through the fourteen year olds have the opportunity to go away and experience a retreat day designed for the age of each grade level.

K-4, K-5, and 1st Grade go to St. Francis Seminary on the lake to spend time singing, reading, dancing, and seeing God in all of Creation.

2nd Grade goes to St. Jospaht Basilica. 2nd Grade retreat focuses on returning to the Lord and the importance of forgiveness.

3rd, 4th and 5th Grade go to Lake Michigan. Retreat focuses on Jesus by the sea. We explore the many times Jesus teaches and mingles with the people by the sea, on the hillsides, and out in nature.

6th and 7th Grade go to the Schoenstatt Retreat Center in the country.Retreat focuses on the question: Who is this man Jesus?

8th Grade goes to Elkhorn, Wisconsin to the Pallottine Retreat House. Their day focuses on: Who am I, and, what does God have to do with my life?

Parents and grandparents are welcome to help with retreat days. Parents and Guardians may even join us for the day to experience a retreat for themselves.

Generally, retreats for K-4, K-5, Grades 1, 3, 4, 5, and 8 are in September and October. Retreat for Grade 2 is in February. Retreat for Grade 6 & 7 is in March/April.

Spirituality at St. Vincent Pallotti Catholic School in Milwaukee, WI

The spirituality of St. Vincent Pallotti Catholic School is characterized by a felt sense of love and community which centers on the person of Jesus Christ. We welcome people of all faith traditions, and we are enriched by the diverse expressions of faith. We build this spirit through several faith practices that are a part of life at Pallotti.

The most pervasive is our daily gathering outside for morning prayer. Our singing, reading Scripture and presenting to God petitions and prayers for the day, sets a tone for the flow of life around our school building and the campus. Parents, grandparents, and friends often join us for morning prayer.

Each Wednesday the school community and guests gather for the celebration of the Eucharist, followed by a community assembly which targets a special weekly message to further strengthen our identity as a Catholic school community. We reflect upon what is going well, and we name core values of a Pallotti student. We celebrate and recognize everything from acts of kindness to achievements.

Safeguarding All God's Children

Safeguarding All God’s Children

In response to the sexual abuse crisis, and to further ensure safety for all children in school, the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops has mandated training and certification in abuse awareness and prevention through the program Safeguarding All of God’s Family.

All adults in Catholic schools, in order to be employed, or to volunteer for school programs and events, must take the 3 hour training course.

Once the course has been completed a certificate of completion is issued and the participant’s name is placed on the Archdiocesan list of adults who may be employed, or may volunteer in Catholic schools.

Courses are offered throughout the year, and are held at a variety of parishes and/or schools throughout the Archdiocese. The Archdiocesan website, www.archmil.org , posts upcoming offerings and locations.
