Spiritual Life

As a Catholic school, our basic practices reflect a Catholic Christian orientation to God. The Spiritual Life Office is dedicated to the spiritual well-being of the students, faculty, and staff of Delone Catholic. We strive to empower our students to live as disciples of Jesus Christ, foster their participation in the life of the Church, and enter more deeply into a personal relationship with God. Together the Director of Spiritual Life and the chaplain do this through a variety of activities, such as:
  • Monthly school-wide liturgies with student liturgical ministers,
  • Weekly Mass on Thursdays in Our Lady Queen of Peace Chapel,
  • Weekly Eucharistic Adoration on Fridays during lunch in Our Lady Queen of Peace Chapel,
  • School-wide Penance services during Advent and Lent,
  • Rosary on the first Tuesday of every month in Our Lady Queen of Peace Chapel at 9:45 a.m., open to the whole community,
  • Weekly Stations of the Cross throughout Lent,
  • Spiritual Life Center, which is open all day for students to gather,
  • Interaction with seminarians from Mount St. Mary's Seminary during their Pastoral Field Experience,
  • Diocesan Seminary Day for boys at Mount St. Mary's Seminary,
