Our Lady of Confidence Day School celebrated its school community with “Confidence Day” on Thursday, Nov. 8. The mission of the school, located at St. David Parish in Willow Grove, is to facilitate the complete development of students with intellectual disabilities to their fullest potential: spiritually, intellectually, vocationally, physically and emotionally.
Guests included family members, people from the community, potential students and organizations that work with students outside of school. The day began with an explanation of the school’s programs followed by a question-and-answer period. Student-led tours took groups throughout the school and visited each classroom. “Confidence Day” concluded with a prayer service.
The school’s program is rooted in Gospel love and embraces the value of life. Our Lady of Confidence Day School is committed to guiding students on the path to independence so they may become vital contributing members of society. The school has a second site at Bishop McDevitt High School in Wyncote (Montgomery County). Our Lady of Confidence Day School is one of four schools of special education in the Archdiocese of Philadelphia, which is now managed and supported by the Faith in the Future Foundation.
Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
