The Eucharist is, as Vatican II states, "the source and summit of Catholic life." As a Eucharistic people, we celebrate this important Sacrament as a faith community at least once a month and on every Holy Day of Obligation that falls on a school day. In addition to these celebrations, liturgical services are held during religion classes on a rotating basis throughout the school year. Finally, the Eucharist is always reserved in our chapel for adoration and meditation throughout the day.
The Sacrament of Reconciliation is offered several times throughout the year. There are all school celebrations during Advent and Lent, as well as opportunities during retreat experiences.
There are also several prayer services that are held at various times during the year. Our Advent Prayer Service ties into our Adopt-A-Family program and is a nice send off for Christmas Break. A prayer service is also held before Easter Break, which sometimes includes a Living Stations of the Cross. Prayer is an important part of the STVM community and we do it often.
