We are pleased to offer Mass on numerous occasions during the school year (Liturgical Schedule). The Masses, for which pastors from our surrounding parishes volunteer to preside, are held in our gymnasium. All parish leaders, as well as parents and alumni, are always invited to join our students for these celebrations of faith.
We are pleased to offer prayer services, which are sponsored by the St. Vincent de Paul Society, in the Chapel. All students and faculty are invited to attend. Additionally, students also experience prayer services throughout the year as a part of their Religion class.
During the season of Lent, students and faculty are invited to attend daily Eucharist services in the chapel and to receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation In addition, our school community is involved in alms giving during this holy season.
Liturgical Planning Team
Our students volunteer to plan all aspects of our Masses. Specifically, our students select the music, verify the readings, create the petitions, and prepare a welcoming environment. All students are welcome to join this organization. (For additional information, please view Liturgical Planning Team in “Activities.”)
Liturgical Music Group
Our students share their gift of music, both vocal and instrumental, during our Masses. All students are welcome to join this organization. (For additional information, please view Liturgical Music Group in “Activities.”)
Extraordinary Ministers of the Eucharist
Our senior students who possess a desire to play a more active role in the celebration of the Eucharist are invited to serve as Extraordinary Ministers of the Eucharist. After completing the required training, the senior students are then commissioned at a Mass. In addition to serving the Mater Dei community, our students may also serve their parish community.
Mass Set-Up Crew
Our students prepare the gymnasium for each of our Masses. Specifically, the crew arrives early in the morning to set-up the stage and chairs, and remains after Mass to remove the stage and the chairs.
