Our Catholic Faith

Ave Maria!

Holy Family is dedicated to the Magisterium of the Catholic Church.

The Catholic Faith informs all that we do at Holy Family, and indeed is the reason for all that we do.

Here are a few of the practical ways that we live the Catholic Faith during the school year:

  • We end each day with the Holy Rosary
  • School begins each day with a Morning Offering
  • The Angelus is prayed at noon

    St. Padre Pio ora pro nobis!

    St. Padre Pio ora pro nobis!

  • The school observes meatless Fridays each week
  • Outdoor Stations of the Cross are prayed every Friday in Lent
  • Prayers begin each class
  • A school-wide St. Andrew’s novena is prayed each Advent
  • Holy Family is closed on all Holy Days of Obligation
  • Second graders participate in a Saturday retreat
  • We organize annual upper school retreats for boys and girls
  • Evening talks or lectures by outside speakers are held on faith topics
  • Athletic practices and games begin and end with a prayer
  • The 11th and 12th grades go on a pilgrimage to Rome every two years
