Liturgy & Prayer

Liturgy Worship

Students are encouraged and trained to take active leadership roles in the various prayer services and liturgies. Catholic students are invited to participate as Altar Servers starting in 7th grade and Eucharistic Ministers during the senior year. All students are invited to participate as lectors or music ministers for Masses and prayer services. 
All students, regardless of faith background, are welcome and encouraged to participate in the prayer life of Marist School. The school year is filled with daily, monthly, seasonal, and annual opportunities for prayer.
