Liturgical Celebrations

Eucharistic liturgy is celebrated at least twice a month. It could be at St. Benedict Church, in our multipurpose room or in our chapel. These liturgies are sometimes with the whole school, with all the Theology classes during a particular period, shared with Benedictine or with St. Benedict Elementary School depending on the occasion. Once a chaplain from the Diocese is assigned to us, we hope to have more.  During the other two weeks of the month, we celebrate the Benedictine Liturgy of the Hours with each class in a chapel service as the Benedictine Sisters have traditionally prayed them.
We offer Reconciliation or Penance services once a year during Lent. Priests from local parishes are asked to come and assist us during this time. In the last three years we have begun the say the rosary once a month before school through the efforts of the Respect Life Club.
