Our focus on Eucharistic Education consists of:
Using all Religion classes at the beginning of the school year to intentionally focus educating the students on the significance of the [daily/weekly/monthly] school Masses, and then continued throughout the years with liturgy and deeper understanding of the True Presence.
This also includes:
- Expectations on dress, behavior, and etiquette;
- Music appropriate to the dignity of the Mass;
- Encouraging participation at Mass using visuals;
- Encourage parental participation and encouragement on the enforcement of the norms for Mass attendance;
- Inviting staff of diocesan/archdiocesan office of Catholic schools to attend;
- Eucharistic Miracles Project on display throughout campus;
- Encourage students to make daily Adoration a priority in their lives;
- An intentional focus this year asking all Religion classes to dedicate one bulletin board in their classrooms to Eucharist education;
- Student selection and training as Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion with certification given by the Archdiocesan Office of Worship. Commissioning is done in our first school Mass;
- Speakers on the power of the Eucharist during our Service week in January that focuses on our Catholic call to community action;
- Evening community Adorations with invitations to all students, faculty and staff, parents, and community; and
- Eucharistic candlelight procession with invitations to all students, faculty and staff, parents, and community.
