Prayer & Worship
“Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power and riches, wisdom and strength, honor and glory and blessing.” (Revelation 5:12)
- Holy Mass is celebrated daily at 7:10 am in the chapel. All members of the school community, including parents and guardians, are welcome.
- Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament is customarily held on First Fridays or another select day in chapel throughout the academic year. In addition, the traditional Forty Hours Devotion is held once a year with two full days of Eucharistic Adoration in chapel, followed by a communal celebration of Holy Mass, Eucharistic Procession, and Solemn Benediction.
- The Sacrament of Reconciliation is celebrated during communal Penance Services for the Advent and Lenten seasons. In addition, the Sacrament is offered bi-weekly in chapel during all lunch periods. Reconciliation is always available anytime upon request of the priest on staff.
- Athletics Prayer Services are conducted before games in chapel and are led by students on the team. Readings from Scripture, a short reflection, and a prayer of blessing set the tone for the competition ahead, reminding students that, whether win or lose, they are first and foremost Christian student athletes. They are encouraged to dedicate each game they play to a particular private intention through the intercession of Our Lady of Victory.
