We celebrate weekly Mass once a week in our Chapel with our school chaplain Father James Griffin. This eucharistic liturgy is optional and open to the community.
Chapel Mass occurs once a month in our Chapel with our school chaplain Father James Griffin. This Mass is celebrated with all theology classes during a particular mod (class period). The mods rotate throughout the year so all students have a chance to celebrate Mass in a small group with their theology class.
Once a month, we hold a school-wide Mass in our multi-purpose room (MPR). If a Holy Day falls within the month, we will choose that day for Mass. Students and faculty/staff participate in readings and music. At times we share Mass with Benedictine College Prep (our brother school) or with St. Benedict Elementary School depending on the occasion. Father James Griffin has been assigned our chaplain by the Diocese and officiates these services.
Every month, we hold Chapel Week. During the week, each grade level gathers in the Chapel to celebrate the Benedictine Liturgy of the Hours as the Benedictine Sisters have traditionally prayed them. These services are planned and led by student chaplains and feature a reflection by the chaplain.
Additional Catholic Offerings – Rosary, Reconciliation, and Adoration
We pray the rosary several times a year in the morning, before school. We also offer reconciliation or penance services twice a year, during Lent and Advent. Priests from local parishes are asked to come and assist us during this time. And in 2018, a monstrance was donated to the school, which allowed us to offer adoration.
I have gained a stronger relationship with God and my faith. I have been shown how important it is to have God in your life and that anytime is a good time to pray.
