Faith Formation

We are called to Learn, Love and Serve

The Mission Statement, which IWA students recite every day from memory, reminds everyone that they are committed to living the Gospel values in word and deed. Students are nurtured spiritually through religion class, regular school Masses, and prayer services. IWA also provides spiritual formation through innovative retreats, prayer partner programs, and service opportunities. At IWA, we are called to “Learn, Love and Serve,” and we use this motto to guide us in creating a unique experiential learning environment. IWA students and families have many opportunities for spiritual development and to help bring the Gospel message to life.

Rooted in the history and heritage of the Sisters of the Incarnate Word, our Campus Ministry programs help create an environment which encourages and guides all members of the IWA community to contribute to our Catholic identity and make present the human face of God. 

In an effort to respond to the spiritual needs of the students, staff, parents, and wider community, our Director of Campus Ministry brings to life meaningful opportunities for spiritual development and service.

Our faith community is rooted in Catholic values and traditions, creating an atmosphere of Christian hospitality where all feel welcome and the diversity of the school community is valued and celebrated.

Throughout the school year, students gather to worship during class Masses, all school Masses, and special prayer services that highlight the liturgical calendar. Additionally, students are constantly surrounded by the loving and supportive presence of the Sisters of the Incarnate Word, helping their love for God and neighbor to grow even stronger.
