The purpose of Living Nazareth is to assist families in the formation of the whole person: spiritual, human, and intellectual. This is accomplished through our unique model which fosters and promotes the contemplative life, especially through a spirit of silence, spiritual direction, and daily Mass. We insist on affording students ample time and freedom to explore their own good pursuits, leading them to view learning as leisure and a cherished gift. Students are entrusted with great responsibility for disposing themselves well to receive this formation which may bear fruit in a variety of ways. No one way is given priority, but all are recognized as unique notes in a symphony composed by God which all well formed students will have ears to hear, joyfully returning thanks and praise to Him who is the majestic Author of that sublime harmony and their dearest Friend.
