Ceremonies & Traditions

Traditions contribute a sense of comfort and belonging. They bring families together and enable people to reconnect with friends. Traditions reinforce values such as freedom, faith, integrity, a good education, personal responsibility, a strong work ethic, and the value of being selfless.  

 Ceremonies around these traditions create unity instead of separation and show us how we are all longing for and striving for the same things in life.

Weekly Mass

Our students take turns planning and leading our weekly Masses. Each class adds their own unique touches for the Mass through communion meditations that include songs, skits, and reflections.

Monthly Adoration

On the first Friday of the Month, the entire student body participates in Eucharistic Adoration. Adoration consists of kneeling or sitting in quiet prayer in witness of the Eucharist. This year, we have also started incorporating scripture readings and songs on a rotating basis.

Living Rosary

Our middle school students lead the school in the Living Rosary in the church. As each prayer is said, a candle is lit to represent the prayers throughout the decades. There are readers, singers, and students who “act” out the Glorious Mysteries.

Living Stations

Our 8th graders lead the school and the parish in a moving portrayal of the Passion on Good Friday. They incorporate song, acting out of the Stations, and reflections to help us reflect on the sacrifice that Jesus made for all of us.

May Crowning

At the first school Mass of May, our 8th graders, joined by family and friends, lead us in honoring Mary.  One student is randomly chosen to crown Mary during a ceremony at the end of Mass.

Feast of Christ the King

We recognize and celebrate our Parish Feast Day.  Our students meet in their family groups to make a crown of sorrows and a crown of victory.  We then head over to Mass for a prayer service led by the students. Click here for more details.

Morning Assembly

We start every school day together as a community at Morning Assembly. Mr. Seib greets everyone, reads a Bible passage, and shares a reflection. Then, the Student Council members lead the student body in prayer, petitions, and the Pledge of Allegiance. Student birthdays and protectors are also recognized. Then we wrap up our time together by saying our school theme of “Growing as Innovative Leaders Guided by Catholic Values”.
