We don’t view service opportunities as isolated events that end when we leave the site, for the service is more than performing a task — it’s the initial 行动 step toward 转换 that takes place through 反射.
部分 Essential Elements of an Edmund Rice Christian Brother Education is to “work toward the creation of a just society.” The work begins with 行动 “with” (not for) those in need. Face-to-face inter行动 empowers those served and affirms their dignity as a valued member of the human family. Engaging with the poor and marginalized allows them, and us, to see the face of Christ.
Following the service is an opportunity for 反射. Prayer is essential as it provides a powerful reflective space to process the experience and to begin to contemplate the reasons why people are in down-trodden circumstances. While exploring the causes, we also ask “where is God present?” Person-to-person inter行动 and critical 反射 in the light of our faith are catalysts toward the formation of life-long, 忠实的公民.
These first two steps lead to 转换 — the desire to affect change in the world around us. Students are encour年龄d to find ways to advocate for long-term change and become involved in their communities.
Leadership begins at 7:30am every school day in the Blessed Edmund Rice Chapel. Students at all grade levels are encour年龄d to serve as lectors and altar servers during daily Mass. This Mass is open to the public and parents and friends are invited to join the celebration. Mass on Holy Days of Obligation are celebrated school-wide. Here, too, students provide the welcome, readings, music and altar serving. Every year, during our Lenten Series, Palma celebrates Mass at 7:00pm on Wednesdays during Lent. Each Mass is hosted by a Palma class.
“God is love” (1 John 4:8)
校园部 is at the heart of 帕尔玛学校. 礼拜仪式, 祈祷仪式, mindfulness and meditation, service learning and advocacy, and retreats at every grade level provide students the opportunity to grow spiritually. Palma respects all beliefs while also honoring its commitment to the Gospel and the Christ of compassion. Students are encour年龄d to form meaningful relationships, committing to peace and justice with friends near and far. 校园部’s many opportunities to serve the common good eng年龄 the head, heart, and hands. Students feel their worth as advocates for those marginalized by poverty and injustice.
