Sacraments and Liturgy
Through the sacraments and liturgy of the Catholic faith, we discover the source and summit of our mission and purpose in the world. Specifically through the Eucharist, we encounter the real presence of Christ. Additionally through our gathering in faith, listening to the Word of God, and receiving the sacraments, we encounter the loving presence of God in our midst.
In the early church, the Eucharist was reserved for those who could not attend the Mass (namely, the sick and imprisoned for the faith). Over time the devotion to the Real Presence of Christ in the Eucharist became a sacred part of Catholic faith tradition. One day each month is devoted to prayer before the Blessed Sacrament in the Pax Christi Chapel from 7:30 a.m. until 2:30 p.m.

Liturgy of the Eucharist
We are truly blessed to celebrate the Liturgy of the Eucharist every day of the week when school is in session with priests from our broader community. Come to the table of God’s love, and, remember that the cares and concerns of those who cannot attend will be offered there as well.

All School Liturgies and Prayer Services
We celebrate our faith and trust in God throughout the seasons of the liturgical and academic year. These gatherings reflect the weaving of both a Catholic and school calendar, i.e., events tied to faith in God and building community with one another. All of our services and events can be found on the Faith, Service, Justice calendar.
Days of Reconciliation (Sacrament of Penance)
Through the Sacrament of Reconciliation, we celebrate the love and mercy of God and receive absolution for the times we have failed to walk justly, love tenderly and walk humbly with God. The sacrament is offered for the entire school twice each year with priests from the archdiocese (Form 1: Individual Confession). The Sacrament of Reconciliation is also available throughout the year at the student’s request
