At The Woods Academy, prayer partners are a special part of everything we do.
Prayer partners are one of the ways that we fulfill our mission of being an inclusive Catholic community. We strive to offer opportunities for all school community members of various ethnic heritages, cultures, races, faith traditions, and economic backgrounds to interact with and learn from one another.
The junior partners, students in Grades 1 through 4, are each paired with a senior partner, a student from Grade 5 through 8. These special pairings help emphasize our family culture, bringing everyone together to build relationships that last a lifetime.
Prayer partners get together once a month for special activities that include chapel services, reading, sports, and even math games. Prayer partners do service projects together and celebrate holidays together.
Every year, the Grade 4 students look forward to becoming the senior partner when they move on to Grade 5.
