Spiritual Development

Marymount Paris welcomes students of all backgrounds and faiths. Our policy is to welcome each person at whatever stage he or she may be on their faith journey, and encourage them on that way in the company of others making that same lifelong pilgrimage, and so develop their personal relationship with God. This is done within the context of Marymount’s Catholic, and in particular, RSHM, tradition. Marymount is a community where each individual is empowered to understand, live and bear witness to his or her faith, in respectful awareness of other’s beliefs.

Each school day begins with Morning Prayer, broadcast throughout the School. There is a weekly Assembly for all the students on a spiritual theme, and always including a passage of Scripture and prayer. There are several all-school Masses and liturgies, as well as class level celebrations in the Community Chapel. The School offers preparation for those students who wish for the Sacraments of Reconciliation, Eucharist and Confirmation. Our Religious Education curriculum is designed to foster a holistic appreciation of the fruitful interaction among faith, life and culture. The spiritual reflection on peace and social justice issues is complemented by opportunities for meaningful service activities. Our aim at Marymount Paris is to help our students be religiously literate, so that they can be the voice of God in the world of the 21st century.
