The formation of well-balanced personalities depends upon the well-rounded education of the whole man, body and soul, through the constant exercise of both natural and supernatural virtues.
Arts - Music & Singing
At Our Lady of Sorrows, an emphasis is given to the arts, especially to music and singing, which refine and temper youth's sensibilities.
Physical training and organized sports provide opportunities of burning off the students’ excess energy while teaching them to live in harmony with their fellow students. In addition to regular recess periods and physical education class, the students participate in the Canyon Athletic Association in both Soccer and Baseball. Our Lady of Sorrows Athletic Program’s primary purpose is the development of a young man’s character recognizing that this is of the utmost importance. Athletics, in combination with his academics, accomplishes precisely this goal. A young man must be challenged through experiencing success and failure so that he is prepared for life’s challenges. Furthermore, he learns the value of working with others through team work. It was best said by a renowned Greek philosopher “You can learn more about the character of a young man in one hour of play, than in a year of conversation” -Plato
Last, but certainly not least, skits and plays are scheduled throughout the academic year. These stage productions, whether simply entertaining or of great literary significance, give students opportunities to learn dramatic skills and experience some of the world’s great literature in a first-hand manner.
