First thing every morning and last thing every afternoon, MND prays as a community. Student volunteers lead morning prayer, often offered for special intentions within or beyond the MND community. In addition, most teachers begin classes with prayer with the opportunity to offer special intentions.
During the Advent and Lenten seasons, all students have the opportunity to participate in the Sacrament of Reconciliation during religion class services.
All-school prayer services enable the student-body to celebrate feasts, seasons and special occasions. However, smaller school groups such as religion classes, classes from other academic departments and athletic teams, may celebrate prayer services in MND’s chapel.
Several all-school Masses are celebrated each year, including each of the holy days of obligation when school is in session. Masses are also celebrated during school retreats.
Scripture Services (with Communion)
Specially commissioned students conduct these daily before school services which are open to all students and staff at MND.
Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament
Several times a year, MND offers time during the school day for students, staff and parents to pray before the Blessed Sacrament in the chapel.
Pastors’ and Youth Ministers’ Brunch
This annual brunch provides an opportunity for pastors and youth ministers to visit MND and share a meal with students from their parish communities.
Angel Educators and Terrific Teachers Mass & Reception
Angel Educators are teachers, youth ministers, or pastors from other schools and parishes who have made a lasting impact on current MND students. Angel Educators inspire you to learn and grow intellectually, personally, or spiritually.
Terrific Teachers are members of the MND Faculty and Staff who inspire our students to learn and grow intellectually, personally or spiritual.
Both Angel Educators and Terrific Teachers are role models who follow Saint Julie’s example by “teaching what you need to know for life.”
