Through the study of the Catholic faith and the Gospel message, MCCS students
celebrate God's love, develop a personal relationship with the Lord, and become
active members of the Catholic community. Our students learn Catholic doctrine,
prayer and traditions, through liturgy, Scripture study, retreats, and community service.

high school students begin the day in our school chapel with
a prayer service and scripture readings, attend weekly Mass.
