Religious Activities

       Our school is committed to maintaining a strong Catholic
  identity.  Our students attend mass weekly, participate in
  prayer services, recite the rosary together, and pray the
  Stations of the Cross during Lent.  In addition, students in
  the sixth, seventh, and eighth grades participate in retreats.
       Community service is emphasized.  Students participate
  in various service projects, such as collecting food and
  clothing for the St. Vincent dePaul Society, raising money
  for the Red Cross and St. Jude's Children's Research
  Hospital, and gathering needed items for the Little Sisters of
  the Poor.
