Liturgy & Worship
The Eucharist is the source and summit of Christian Life. At North Catholic High School, students, faculty, staff, and parents gather to attend Mass every other Thursday as a school community. Throughout the school year each particular class has an opportunity to gather in the chapel for additional Masses. Holy Days of Obligation and other major feast days are also celebrated on campus.
Daily prayer nourishes the soul, and we at North Catholic High School encourage our students to continuously grow in the life of prayer. Each day at North Catholic High School begins with prayer, and at the end of the day the school pauses to pray the traditional Marianist 3 o’clock prayer.
The Sacrament of Reconciliation
"Those who approach the sacrament of Penance obtain pardon from God's mercy for the offense committed against him, and are, at the same time, reconciled with the Church which they have wounded by their sins and which by charity, by example, and by prayer labors for their conversion.” Lumen Gentium, 4.
Students have the opportunity every Thursday to receive the Sacrament of Penance and Reconciliation with the school chaplain, Father Ken, as well as by appointment and during periodic days of recollection.
The Catholic Church teaches that the Holy Eucharist is really and truly the body, blood, soul, and divinity of Jesus Christ. Given this belief, it is appropriate and laudable to worship Christ truly present in the Blessed Sacrament while exposed in the monstrance on the altar. Every first-Friday of the month all North Catholic students spend their religion class in prayer and adoration before the Blessed Sacrament. Periodically throughout the year North Catholic High School also sponsors a 24-hour period of Eucharistic Adoration, where parents and community members are encouraged to come spend an hour with Our Lord throughout the day and night.
