Opus Dei

Opus Dei oversees the religious education and spiritual formation offered to the school’s parents, teachers and pupils.

Opus Dei s a personal prelature of the Catholic Church founded in 1928 by St. Josemaría Escrivá, who was canonized by Pope John Paul II in 2002. Its mission is to help people turn their work and daily activities into occasions for growing closer to God, for serving others, and for improving society.

Many of the special strengths of The Laurels reflect the spirit of Opus Dei:

  • Academic excellence by striving for personal holiness in ordinary work
  • Individual character formation through a one-to-one tutorial system
  • Outstanding teachers who exemplify Christian principles
  • Practical classes on parenting skills and character development
  • An atmosphere imbued with optimism, cheerfulness, and friendliness

At the centre of life at The Laurels is an effort to help each person involved with the school to take their faith seriously by living it in their own particular circumstances. To achieve this end, Opus Dei offers:

Individual spiritual attention
Mass and Confession
Classes on the teachings of the Catholic Church
Evenings of recollection and retreats
