About Opus Dei

Opus Dei oversees the religious education and spiritual formation offered to the school’s parents, teachers and pupils.

Opus Dei s a personal prelature of the Catholic Church founded in 1928 by St. Josemaría Escrivá, who was canonized by Pope John Paul II in 2002. Its mission is to help people turn their work and daily activities into occasions for growing closer to God, for serving others, and for improving society.

Many of the special strengths of Roseville that reflect the spirit of Opus Dei include:

  • Academic excellence by striving for personal holiness in ordinary work
  •  Individual character formation through a one-to-one tutorial system
  •  Outstanding teachers who exemplify Christian principles
  •  Practical classes on parenting skills and character development
  • An atmosphere imbued with optimism, cheerfulness, and friendliness

At the centre of life at Roseville  is an effort to help each person involved with the school to take their faith seriously by living it in their own particular circumstances. To achieve this, Opus Dei offers:

  • Individual spiritual attention
  • Mass and Confession
  • Classes on the teachings of the Catholic Church
  • Evenings of recollection and retreats


The standards of behavior enumerated below serve a guide and a help to students to always act in a way that reflects the education they receive at home and in school. As is expected, these rules are observed by students in a natural and spontaneous way as they go about their normal activities. 

Roseville School is not so much interested in a meticulous observance of rules, as in the students’ possession of clear principles and criteria to guide them in their personal conduct and in their relationship with other persons.
