The school community attends Mass each Wednesday at 8:00am, Stations of the cross on Fridays during Lent and the Living Rosary in May. Family and Friends in our community are encouraged and invited to join the school body for any of these worship days.

Confirmation
Confirmation is a two year, family oriented process, generally beginning in the 7th grade, which prepares youth for the reception of the Sacrament of Confirmation at the end of 8th grade.

Sacrament of Confirmation
The Sacrament of Confirmation is one of the Sacraments of Initiation. Students will receive the Holy Spirit, strengthening their bond to Christ and the Church. As fully initiated members of the Church, they become public witnesses to Christ and carry on the mission of the Apostles. Their journey begins in the seventh grade as they are confirmed in the spring of their eighth grade year. Students also are required to have 24 hours of service.

Altar Servers
Beginning in fourth grade, students may learn how to serve at Mass. They are called on to serve during Masses on the weekend, school Masses and for funerals. To be an altar server, contact the Parish Office for information.
