St. Maria Goretti Catholic High School has a vibrant, active faith community that is designed to promote Catholic Christian living among our students, faculty, and staff. The Campus Minister, supported by the Theology Department, directs the program. Campus Ministry encourages student involvement and input in all aspects of the program, including retreats, liturgies, and community service.
St. Maria Goretti encourages all students to embrace prayer as an integral aspect of their daily lives. Each school day at Goretti begins and ends in prayer, and a prayer is said before lunch, to send our community into the day with a spirit of service and honor to God. We welcome students of all faiths.
Let us consider how to rouse one another to love and good works. We should not stay away from meeting together, as is the custom of some, but encourage one another, and this all the more as you see the Day drawing near – Hebrews 10:24-25
Liturgy & Sacraments
The school offers a wide variety of liturgies throughout the year. Students participate in school Mass at least once monthly. Our student-based Liturgy team helps plan the liturgy and students participate in all aspects of the mass including Music and Readings. Every grade level receives special recognition at one of the Masses throughout the year.
- In September, we celebrate our freshman and incoming students at a Welcome Mass: The Mass of the Holy Spirit.
- In October, we recognize our sophomore class at the Sophomore Recognition Mass.
- In April, we recognize our junior class at the Junior Recognition Mass where their class rings are blessed.
- In May, we recognize our graduating seniors at our Farewell Mass.
Opportunity for personal prayer is available at St. Maria Goretti's Chapel. The Sacrament of Confession is also provided twice per month by a visiting priest.
