Cultural and Spiritual Activities
We organize a variety of activities to help girls expand their horizons and find opportunities to give back to the community.
From anthropology classes to cultural evenings with guest speakers, we try to give girls the tools they need to navigate through life challenges and be the best they can be.
Some of the spiritual activities offered are: meditations, classes about the Catholic Faith, and days of recollection. These activities are entrusted to Opus Dei, a Personal Prelature of the Catholic Church which aims to help people seek holiness in study and daily work and through family and social commitments.
