- Participation in a school Mass is an opportunity for students to experience God in their lives, regardless of their religious preference.
- Freshmen are taken through a step-by-step guide to the Catholic Mass prior to the first all school mass in September. Transfer students will receive detailed information in their religion classes regarding what to expect as well as expected behavior at Catholic Masses.
- At all liturgical events, students are expected to behave in a respectful and reverential way. During communion, those students who chose not to receive will simply place their right hand over their heart to receive a blessing.
Expectations are outlined in the Student Handbook under the dress code section.
