Mass & Prayer

The Mass is the source and summit of all of the school’s activities.  A school wide Mass is celebrated each week on Friday, Holy Days of Obligation, or a seasonal feast.  Students prepare for the Mass by being lectors, presenters of the bread and wine, and altar servers.  The assigned class actively participates in the preparation and creates the Prayer of the Faithful reflecting the needs of the Church and society.  The children’s choir leads the entire school body in singing praise to the Lord.

The Sunday 9:00 a.m. Mass in the parish is the Family Mass for which each grade is assigned a particular date.  Worshiping as a family bonds the members together and provides strength when strength is needed to meet the challenges that families encounter.  The students, along with their families, will prepare to be lectors, greeters, altar servers, and presenters of the bread and wine at the Offertory.

Each school day the students begin the day with prayer as a part of the opening exercises.  October and May are months during which Mary, the mother of Jesus, is recognized in special ways.  During those months the school day begins with the students praying one decade of the Rosary.  Throughout the school day each class begins with prayer.  Grace before meals is prayed before the lunch period.
