Spiritual Life at Marian
Marian High School strives to offer its students a place where they can live out their faith and experience spiritual growth both in and out of the classroom. Because Marian is a Catholic school, students are required to take four years of theology. Beyond the classroom, however, Marian students are actively involved in writing daily prayers, planning school liturgies, organizing outreach projects, completing community service hours, and participating in class retreats.
Liturgies are an important part of the Marian experience. Each school year at Marian begins with an opening Mass and the commissioning of the school class and club leaders. Masses are scheduled throughout the school year to celebrate the holy days and seasons of the Church. In addition, the Mothers’ Club and the Dads’ Club each plan special liturgies for parents and their daughters followed by a breakfast. Students also have the opportunity to attend weekly Mass celebrated in the Chapel. The end of the school year is celebrated with a closing Mass.
Each school day begins with morning prayer. Students have the opportunity to participate in weekly Bible study groups. During Advent and Lent, a reconciliation service is planned for students through their theology classes. Confession is also available every week after Mass.
