Spirit In Motion. Joy In Service.
As a Catholic, college preparatory high school, we provide a unique opportunity where academics and spiritual practice interact to promote development of the whole student. Campus Ministry at MKCHS is not a club, but rather an invitation to our entire community- students, faculty, parents, volunteers- to participate in our activities and major events throughout the school year. Our program consists of participation in the following:
- Daily prayer
- Weekly Mass
- Monthly all-school Mass
- Yearly faith-focused theme
- Liturgical prayer services
- All-school penance service
- Annual grade-level retreats
- Purposeful service in the community
Prayer and Liturgical Celebrations
Every day begins and ends with prayer over the PA. During the course of the year, Campus Ministry provides a variety of liturgical celebrations. Weekly Mass, monthly all-school masses, and prayer services are all a part of the Kelly High School experience. In all of these, students play a major role in the planning, as well as participating as readers, leaders of song, ushers, and gifts presentation.
Retreats are a very popular part of life at Kelly High School. Each grade participates in a day-long faith and relationship-building experience. These retreats address a different set of topics with the goal of bringing students closer together as a class through a deeper understanding of our values and mission.
