Central to the mission of Marist is its commitment to nurturing faith within the lived context of Christian community and Catholic sacramentality. While these concepts are taught within the Theology curriculum, the process of faith development cannot be accomplished solely in the Theology classroom. In recognition of these realities, Marist works to create a culture that is imbued with Christian values and spirituality, offering students exposure to this culture through each classroom experience, and in each sport and activity, as well as through a number of specifically spiritual experiences. These experiences include Christian Service, Liturgy and Prayer, Retreats, Student Faith Leadership, and Spiritual Guidance and Pastoral Care.

Liturgy and Prayer
St. Paul’s exhortation to “pray always” challenges us to come together in prayer and community worship as a daily habit. This habit anchors and directs our activities by reminding us that God is present in all we do. It allows us to celebrate our daily lives by giving prayerful attention to our successes and joys, as well as to our trials and suffering. To live out this challenge, the school day always begins with a shared prayer, and Theology classes generally incorporate prayer into their daily habit. Weekly Masses are available to all students in the Chapel, and the entire school joins together for Mass or a prayer service about once each month. Retreats also include individual and communal prayer, Mass, and in some cases, an opportunity for the Sacrament of Reconciliation.
