Faith & Service
Prayer & Worship
Fifteen school-wide Masses and prayer services mark key moments in the liturgical and school year. Students also attend Theology class Masses, and special liturgies and memorials as requested. In lieu of the Eucharist, non-Catholic students are encouraged to receive a blessing. Parents and grandparents are always welcome to attend. Among the cherished St. Francis traditions are the special family Masses celebrated by each grade level during the year. Read More on Prayer and Worship

Christian Service is a response to the call to emulate the life and ministry of Jesus Christ as it is presented in the Gospels. As ministers of God’s love and mercy, Christians are called to feed the hungry, give drink to the thirsty, welcome the stranger, clothe the naked, care for the sick and visit the imprisoned (cf. Matthew 25:35-36). Because this component of faith is so important, each student must complete a minimum number of direct service hours in pre-approved, non-profit agencies.This yearly minimum number of direct service hours is a requirement to complete her Theology class.
All types of service are encouraged and of value, yet the graduation requirement is focused on direct service in non-profit agencies working with those in need. Read more on Christian Service
