“If you are what you should be, you will set the whole world ablaze!” St. Catherine of Siena
Each day students in grades K-12 recite morning prayers (including consecrations to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary), the Angelus and the Blessing before Meals and Grace after Meals at noon, and at the end of the day students kneel and recite five decades of the Rosary in English on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. On Tuesday the Rosary is recited in Latin, and on Thursday the Divine Mercy Chaplet is recited. Once a month students assist at the extraordinary form of the Mass and benediction; confession is also available. Each month priests speak to students on topics related to the liturgical year, or spiritual and moral subjects.
All students participate in our virtues and works of mercy (spiritual and corporeal) program.
Students are provided a rare insight into their Catholic heritage through the school’s devotion to the extraordinary form of the liturgy and beautiful sacred music of the Church. Students participate in the 1500-year-old Latin Mass, as encouraged by St. John Paul II and Pope Benedict XVI. Bishop David Malloy has graciously allowed Adoration and Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament in the Academy's chapel.
