Opus Dei

A priest of Opus Dei provides spiritual formation which is offered to the school’s parents, teachers, pupils and friends.

Opus Dei is a personal prelature of the Catholic Church founded in 1928 by St. Josemaría Escrivá, who was canonized by Pope John Paul II in 2002. Its mission is to help people turn their work and daily activities into occasions for growing closer to God, for serving others, and for improving society.
