Faith Development and Enrichment

Faith Development and Enrichment

Students at St. Clare have a wide variety of opportunities to develop and grow in their faith, and our times of daily prayer together are only the beginning.

Religion Class 

  • K-5th grade students attend Catechesis of the Good Shepherd class two times per week, a Montessori-based approach to teaching the faith
  • 6th-8th grade students deepen their faith in daily religion classes 

Liturgical Life

  • School-wide Mass each Wednesday morning at 8:15 am; families and friends of St. Clare are welcome to join the students for this weekly Mass
  • Opportunities to celebrate the sacrament of reconciliation during Advent and Lent 
  • Praying the rosary as a school community in the month of October
  • Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament during Catholic Schools Week


  • Retreats for students preparing to receiving a sacrament
  • Mountain Madness Archdiocesan-wide retreat for middle school students
  • Girl Genius Retreat for 7th and 8th grade girls at the Cabrini Shrine
  • 8th grade class pilgrimage to Santa Fe

“Girl Genius” (7th-8th grade girls) & “Man Club” (7th-8th grade boys)

  • Our middle school students learn about the inherent dignity of the human being through these two groups
  • Both of these programs foster genuine friendships while students learn about the inherent dignity they have as people
  • Each child is encouraged to grow as they learn about virtues such as modesty, prudence, and self-control

Protecting God’s Children
The Archdiocese of Denver is committed to promoting a safe environment for the children and young people in our care. The primary responsibilities of the director are to ensure compliance with the American Bishops’ Charter for the Protection of Children and Young People, to serve as the victim assistance coordinator for the archdiocese, and to act as the archbishop’s liaison to the Office of Child and Youth Protection of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops. 

Each fall, teachers present age-appropriate lessons to students aimed at keeping them safe. More information about Called to Protect can be found at
