Liturgies

Archbishop Mitty High School offers a wide array of liturgical opportunities. Both Eucharistic and non-Eucharistic liturgies assist us as a community in celebrating and recognizing God's presence in our lives through the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Through the Eucharist we are nourished by God's infinite mercy and compassion, as it is “the source and summit of the Christian life" (Sacrosanctum Concilium, 10). We are therefore invited to become more loving and just in our daily life; to model our lives after Christ.

Mass is offered weekly on Monday at 2:45pm and Friday at 7:15am in our community chapel and all students, faculty, staff, and parents are warmly invited. Each class will attend liturgy together once during the school year. Every time we come together in prayer people of all faith backgrounds are encouraged to attend and participate fully and actively. There are many ways to assist with liturgies. We are always in need of lectors, Eucharistic ministers, actors, and artists.

Each year, the Campus Ministry department chooses a liturgical theme that is interwoven into all assemblies and liturgies. The theme is introduced at the start of the school year, on the first day of classes, during the All School Assembly. All subsequent monthly assemblies focus on one aspect of the theme. A particular gospel passage is read that relates to the theme and a member of the administration, faculty, or staff offers their reflection on the scripture.
