A Notre Dame Learning Community

Learn, Live, Lead & Serve

Prayers and Worship

Daily Prayer: 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.

Reconciliation: During the Advent and Lenten seasons, all students have the opportunity to participate in the Sacrament of Reconciliation during religion class services.

Prayer 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.

Mass: 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.
  • Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament: Once a quarter, MND has a three hour period during which the Blessed Sacrament is exposed and students and staff invited to pray.

Student Leadership - Students interested in helping with the planning of these community prayer opportunities should consider joining MND's Worship Commission.
