Sacramental Policies are as follows:

  • Students entering Grade 2 must have had formal religious instruction the previous year, otherwise they will be placed in Grade 1.
  • Grade 2 is a sacrament year, as students will receive the Sacraments of Reconciliation and Eucharist for the first time.
  • Students entering Grade 7 must have had formal religious instruction in Grade 6 before being accepted into the Grades 7-8 Confirmation Preparation Program.


We would like to express our sincere thanks for the out-pouring of support that has been received from the Our Lady of the Wayside parish for Sister Joan and our family. The number of phone calls, comments left on the funeral home guestbook site, and OLW Facebook page and website have been overwhelming and a testament to the number of people Sister Adrienne touched in her life. It will take our family, especially Sister Joan, some time to read through all of the comments left by so many. We are deeply touched and truly appreciate the prayers, thoughts and offers of support and help during this difficult time for Sister Joan. We appreciate your understanding of Sister Joan’s privacy during this time. We look forward to seeing you all the memorial mass later this year to celebrate the life of Sister Adrienne.

Thank You,

Sister Joan Shields, Marian (Joan’s sister) & Curt Brandt, Julie ((Niece) & Eric Coger, Karen (Niece) & Jeff, Lyla & Emma (Great Nieces) McElroy, Dan (Nephew) Brandt
