Opus Dei is a personal prelature of the Catholic Church founded in 1928 by St. Josemaría Escrivá. At the core of Opus Dei’s mission is the teaching that all men and women are called to holiness, which can be pursued through our everyday lives and work.
The parents who founded Oakcrest sought faculty who would offer a holistic education for their daughters and for future generations. They asked Opus Dei to take responsibility for the spiritual guidance and doctrinal instruction provided through the school. More than 35 years later, the members of Oakcrest’s Board of Trustees, Board of Directors and School Administration remain committed to this mission and are grateful for the continued inspiration and assistance that the Prelature of Opus Dei provides.
Our chaplains, priests of the Prelature, celebrate Mass in our chapel daily, and our school community approaches all work in a manner reflective of the spirit of Opus Dei—with dedication and cheerfulness, especially in the face of challenges.
