Prayer, Liturgy, & Sacramental Life

At McNicholas, we are rooted in our experience of God in our daily lives, and so prayer is at the center of all that we do as a community. 

Our actions are shaped by the many opportunities to experience God’s love through prayer and reflection within the classroom setting as well as in the sacred space of our school’s chapel. Each school day begins and ends in prayer, and all members of the community share in the experience of prayer through communal worship at prayer services and within the celebration of Mass.

Friday Morning Mass and Prayer

Students, faculty, staff, parents, and alumni are welcome to gather for worship at Mass every Friday at 7 a.m. in our school’s chapel.

Prayer in the Chapel

In the midst of the busyness of life, students are always welcome to the sacred space of our school’s chapel for quiet reflection and prayer. Student study Bibles are on hand for the practice of Lectio Divina. On occasion, groups will meet for formal group prayer before school, during lunch, or after school.

All-School Masses

We gather across the street at the sanctuary of Guardian Angels Parish for monthly masses and Holy Day celebrations. Students are encouraged to full and active participation in the liturgy as Eucharistic ministers, lectors, servers, and vocal and instrumental musicians.
