Holy Sacrifice of the Mass
Worship of God is an important part of life in a Catholic school. Faculty and Cadets attend Holy Mass three times a month. At this Divine Liturgy, we fulfill the four purposes of Christian prayer: we adore God, we thank Him, we petition Him, and we make reparation for our sins and the sins of others. Monthly Masses are celebrated at St. Benedict Church next to the school.
In addition to monthly Masses, Benedictine has Masses for special occasions. In the Fall, we have a Mother-Son Mass and Dinner, Junior Ring Mass and Ceremony, and a Grandparents Mass and Luncheon. In the Spring, we have a Father-Son Mass and Dinner.
Sacrament of Reconciliation
Confession is offered to Cadets on a weekly basis. One day a week, priests hear confessions from 8:00am until 3:00pm in the school chapel. Confession is open to non-Catholics as well as Catholics. Weekly Confession is highly encouraged, but is voluntary for all.
