|The Holy Mass|
“At the Last Supper, on the night when he was betrayed, our Savior instituted the eucharistic sacrifice of his body and blood. He did this in order to perpetuate the sacrifice of the Cross throughout the centuries until he should come again and in this way to entrust to his beloved Bride, the Church, a memorial of his death and resurrection: a sacrament of love, a sign of unity, a bond of charity, a paschal banquet ‘in which Christ is eaten, the heart is filled with grace, and a pledge of future glory is given to us” ” (Constitution on the Sacred Liturgy, #42).
Jesus offered himself as a sacrifice in order to bring us salvation and give us His Spirit. Pentecost is the fruit of the sacrifice of the Cross and the victory of the Resurrection. Thus, the Church teaches that every Mass is a new Pentecost, a new opportunity to receive the Spirit afresh (see the Catechism of the Catholic Church, par. 739) *3
At MSMCS, students and staff attend the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass daily at 8:10am in the Christ the King Chapel of the Sisters of Our Lady of Charity on the Mount St. Michael Campus. Parents are always welcome to attend.
*1 Pieta, p. 39
Students are given the opportunity to receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation or Penance on Thursday before the first Friday of each month.
|We celebrate First Fridays dedicated to the Sacred Heart of Jesus with Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament. Each class goes before the Lord in prayer in our Sacred Heart of Jesus Chapel.|
