WHY VIRTUE FORMATION?
The notion of virtue is deeply rooted in Catholic Christian tradition. It is in a community of caring, committed partners that we find the space and time to become our best selves. The main thing to remember is that virtue is increased by two things: practice and prayer.
By practicing the virtues, we develop habits of goodness that help us to resist the temptation of vice. In a school community, virtue formation contributes to a healthy positive learning environment by fostering a climate in which all members feel safe, confident and hope-filled about themselves, their relationships and their futures.
By praying, we receive the grace of God to continue to concentrate on finding ways to follow Jesus’ example in all that we say and do.
