Additional Prayer Opportunities

At different times during the year, various prayer opportunities such as Adoration, the Rosary, praise and worship, Lectio Divina, Spiritual Reading Discussion Groups, Small Group Faith Sharing, Spiritual Direction, and Ignatian Contemplation are offered to our students, faculty and staff, parents, and alumni. Advertisements for these opportunities are sent through email and posted around the school.

If you are interested in participating or would like to start a prayer group of your own, please contact the Mission and Ministry Office. Our staff along with the Mission and Ministry Leadership Board are eager to assist you in any way that we can.

Being "Jesuit" Means:

Our education and formation are rooted in Ignatian spirituality.

Our work is characterized by loyalty to the Church, availability for service, and a high-hearted love of Christ.

The education we provide is marked by “cura personalis,” which means attention to the individual student and respect for the individual’s potential and pace in learning. Jesuit education is characterized by adaptability to individual differences and needs, as well as to wider needs determined by a reading of the “signs of the times.

We routinely engage in the practice of discernment, an effort to choose wisely in worldly matters by striving to align personal and institutional choice with the will of God. We share this practice with our students, helping them to choose wisely and well as they mature into men for and with others.
