Spiritual

Catholic High offers a variety of opportunities for spiritual growth and community building through liturgy, curriculum, retreats, and Campus Ministry.
All experiences are intended to invite the students to deepen their faith rooted in the way of Christ in the Catholic tradition.
 

   Liturgy

Each week the school gathers for liturgy, prayer and worship. Services are geared toward student participation and reflection in the spirit of the Second Vatican Council. In addition to liturgy, students have the opportunity to celebrate the Sacrament of Reconciliation through private confession or communal penance services that are held during the school year. After-school prayer services facilitated by Campus Ministry give students the chance to experience communal prayer with their peers outside of school liturgies. Students serve as musicians, choir, cantors, lectors, Eucharistic ministers, and assembly as they meet Jesus Christ in the liturgy. Worship and prayer are important parts of student life at Catholic High. 

  Curriculum and Retreats


 Students are required to take four years of religion and participate in a yearly retreat experience. Religion courses help the student explore the scriptures, morality, church history, social justice, and many other faith topics rooted in the Catholic tradition. Each yearly retreat focuses on a different aspect of student spiritual life and is designed for each specific grade level. These experiences invite the students to deepen their relationship with God, others, and themselves as they journey through the Christian life.



A Prayer for Students

    Lord, we thank You for blessing each of our children with the precious gift of one mind that they may choose You freely. Please guide our children's minds to learn Your Word so they may spread the good news. We thank You for giving them one heart that they may love You completely. Please fill their hearts with love and gratitude for You and develop their unique and individual gifts to honor You. We thank You for giving them one soul, that they may be examples of Your goodness. We ask Your blessing on their souls that they may fulfill their destiny in whatever profession You lead them. We thank Your, Lord, that You have given them one body, that they may use their talents to bring You glory. Lord, help them remember that the body is a temple of God that needs to be protected and nourished.
     Let our young people reach their full potential and bring You glory through their spiritual life, their academics, their sports, and their creative arts.
     Lord, may our church and school communities be bound by love. May our hearts be filled with the love and desire to do your will always, and may we continue to express our gratitude for the gift of Catholic High School. We ask this in Jesus' name. -Amen
