Our Lady of Sorrows (OLS) Catholic School in Farmington is putting faith in action during Catholic Schools Week, Jan. 27 through Feb. 1.
One of the largest and most respected schools in the Archdiocese of Detroit, with more than 740 children in grades preschool through eighth grade, Our Lady of Sorrows will participate in a week of activities designed to demonstrate how Catholic schools raise the standards in education.
All alumni, current and prospective families are invited to attend an Open House on Sunday, Jan. 27, 1 p.m.-4 p.m., which will feature presentations from the school band, the OLS Youth Group puppet ministry, science experiments in the school's state of the art science labs, individual classroom activities, school tours, refreshments and giveaways.
The week will continue with a visit from The Ned Show, a high energy school assembly that reinforces OLS teachings that students become champions of school and life by (N)ever giving up, (E)ncouraging others, and (D)oing your best. Other activities that week include a V.I.P. Day, Family Movie Night at the Farmington Civic Theater in downtown Farmington and a breakfast and blessing honoring our Partners in Service.
The week will culminate with close to 600 students creating a Balloon Rosary that will be lifted up in the chilly Michigan skies to pray for the intention of human life from the womb to the tomb.
