Faithful Traditions


Dear Parents,
With great joy and anticipation, the Spirituality Committee of Our Lady of Prompt Succor Church welcomes your children in grades two through six to become members of Children of Hope Eucharistic Adorers. For six glorious years, the OLPS children have had the wonderful opportunity to be members of Children of Hope Eucharistic Adorers, a national ministry begun almost ten years ago by Fr. Antoine Thomas, a French priest of the Congregation of St. John.
Every First Friday from 3:00 P.M. to 4:00 P.M., the Hour of Mercy, the OLPS Children of Hope sacrifice their time to come to the church to adore Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament. They pray the Rosary, silently meditate on Sacred Scripture, and sing traditional Catholic hymns. The children have a great excitement about this kind of prayer group. They enjoy being at the feet of Jesus, resting under His loving gaze. Torrents of graces stream from Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament to all those who come to receive them.
Pope Benedict XVI said: “Gather the children of the world before the tabernacles of the world for the families of the world…. In my ministry, I also count on children’s prayers and their active participation in the mission of the Church. (Feast of the Epiphany, 200 )
Pope John Paul II said: “I urge priests, religious, and lay people to continue and redouble their efforts to teach the younger generations the meaning and value of Eucharistic Adoration and devotion. How will young people be able to know the Lord if they are not introduced to the mystery of His Presence?” (May 28, 1996)
Children are very important in God’s plan of eternal salvation. May these Children of Hope be Jesus’ little present day disciples, spreading the Good News and building up the Kingdom of God. To bring your children to adore and love Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament is one of the most valuable treasures you can give your children.
Marthe Robin, a French mystic said, “Nothing more beautiful has ascended to God than the prayers of children.”
Please complete a permission slip and return to school if you would like your child to attend.
If you have any questions, please call Nelwyn Gentry, 487-1862.

  • Madison started OLPS several weeks into her 4th grade year.  I cannot begin to explain what OLPS did for her.  Academically she was behind and all of her teachers spent the extra time she needed catch up.  She continued to get that attention through the 6th grade and ended that year with test scores higher than her grade level.  Not only has she begun to excel academically but spiritually as well.  Madison was baptized this past Easter.  She is truly happy and we are thankful to have experience all that OLPS has to offer.   (Former OLPS Parent)..

  • Loving Jesus. Loving learning. Loving others. It’s what we love about OLPS.    For the Chapman family, our commitment to OLPS revolves around two significant contributions to our children’s upbringing:  Christ and community.    We value our Catholic Christian faith, and resolved early on to do anything within our power to ensure our children would be raised with a strong sense of faith, of spirituality, of Biblical truth. While private school tuition can be a sacrifice, we determined long ago that there is no price too high for providing our children with a learning environment where a Christ was unashamedly the central focus. OLPS has met and exceeded our expectations for providing a Christ-centered academic environment for our children.    Because we want our children to become Christian men and women who are contributing members of our society, we chose to place our children in a community of like-minded parents. Our OLPS community of parents and children is tight-knit, supportive, and loving. Kids go to church together, they attend school together, they play sports together, they go to (a lot of) parties together. Essentially, these children create their own supportive little culture. Because of this frequent interaction, the parents, by .. Read more
