Spiritual Life

A rich sacramental and prayer life is at the center of our students’ daily life, with the Eucharist being at the very core. Each day’s class schedule is structured around the Mass, so that any student who wishes may easily attend. Other devotions and ministries contribute to Catholic life on campus, including Eucharistic Adoration, Rosary, households, and retreats.
