SODALITY OF THE BLESSED VIRGIN MARY
For many years, our parish school has been blessed to have a “Sodality of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Mother of God” affectionately nicknamed as the “Sodality Girls at SNUCS”. After some years of inactivity, it was revived in 2013 for girls in grades 3-8.
Sodalists are inducted on the “Feast of the Presentation of Mary in the Temple” or its closest weekday Divine Liturgy for the students. The Sodality Girls meet monthly for an hour after school, and at other times as needed.
The aims of this Marian Sodality are:
To nurture the personal sanctification of its members,
By offering themselves more intensely to Jesus through Mary
With extra spiritual enrichments geared especially for Catholic Christian girls
Prayer ministry, to:
Help bring people closer to God, and
I Intercede for others’ special intentions and/or needs
Help the parish church, such as help decorate for Christmas, Great Friday and Easter; etc.
Charitable outreach activities, such as fundraisers for charitable causes, holiday projects as gifts for
the sick and homebound
Fun time together as God’s beloved daughters
Develop co-operative/collegiate leadership skills.
Hence in their daily lives, the Sodalists of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Mother of God at Saint Nicholas School do their best to be like Mary the Theotokos in bringing Christ with His Gospel Values to the world.
