Liturgical Activities

Every day, Pope John students are challenged to deepen and explore their beliefs through prayer, theological education, and opportunities to participate in the sacramental life of the Church.  An optional daily Mass is held during first advisory on A-days and second advisory on B-days in the school chapel.  In addition to daily mass, weekly confession and adoration of the Blessed Sacrament are available.  Throughout the school year, Campus Ministry and Faculty coordinate to allow individual classes to take part in other spiritual activities such as the Stations of the Cross, praying the Rosary, and introductions to different methods of prayer.  During each sports season, each team attends mass together, strengthening awareness of God as the source of all athletic talent and fostering a sense of unity and camaraderie in Christ.

Once or twice a month students, faculty, and staff gather as one community to celebrate mass.  As a faith-based school, attending these liturgies is a requirement, regardless of one’s faith background.  Our communal liturgical celebrations revolve around the liturgical seasons of the Church and solemnities such as the Immaculate Conception and Saint Joseph.  Many students take advantage of the opportunity to serve Christ in the context of the sacred liturgy by filling the roles of lector, cantor, altar server, and Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion.  Family and friends of Pope John are warmly invited to attend every liturgy.  For all guests, please see the Guidelines for the Reception of Holy Communion from the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops.
