Prayer, Liturgy, and Mass

Prayer

Cathedral Catholic High School is a Catholic faith community first and foremost. Each member of our community is encouraged and supported on their personal spiritual journey.  We celebrate and strengthen our faith through prayer and liturgical experiences that mark each day and season.

Community Prayer

Our school prayer is part of the lived spirituality of CCHS.  It is recited as our morning prayer every Friday and included during our Eucharistic celebration at every all-school mass. It provides the framework for our retreat program and is central to our ‘way of being’ on campus and in the world.

Lord Jesus Christ, 
Let my gifts change the world,
help us live the call, 
build the Kingdom, 
Veni Sancte Spiritus. 
(translation – Come Holy Spirit)

Daily School & Classroom Prayer

Each school day begins with a student led prayer. Classroom prayer at the beginning of each class reinforces the centrality of prayer in our lives and the lives of our students.

Other Prayer Opportunities

The St. Thérèse Chapel is open and available for students before, during and after school for all members of our community.  The beautiful Chapel and serene garden areas are quiet spaces for contemplation and prayer. CCHS often offers rosaries, various prayer interactions (such as Lenten Eucharistic adoration, novenas, etc.). Our campus priests hold lunchtime Bible study and other prayer groups.  Mission & Ministry and Campus Ministry classes host Chapel Nights for students which include opportunities for community building, Eucharistic adoration, praise and worship, reconciliation, service and other spiritual experiences. Drop in to the Mission & Ministry office for details on current opportunities.


Liturgy & Mass

Liturgy of the Eucharist

At the celebration of the Eucharist we recognize that we are the Body of Christ, becoming what we receive. Students, faculty, staff and our CCHS families are invited to attend daily, all-school and special Eucharistic liturgies.  

Daily Masses

Monday – Friday: 7:15 a.m. on school days in St. Thérèse Chapel

Liturgy of the Eucharist normally lasts about half an hour.  Thus students are able to nurture their faith, build community and make it to their first class on time.

All School Liturgy 

Our all school liturgies are beautiful opportunities to celebrate our faith and join together in community as one body, one spirit of God.  Everyone is welcome and encouraged to attend.
