Mass & Adoration
As Catholics, we believe Christ is truly present in the Eucharist with his body, blood, soul, and divinity. Our faith life at Aquinas Academy flows forth in recognition of His love for us on the Cross and in the Eucharist.
The Eucharist is "the source and summit of the Christian life" (Lumen gentium). As such, the celebration of the Eucharist is of utmost importance to the faith formation of our students. Mass is celbrated at least once per week, sometimes more, depending on feast days or other holy days of obligation. Priests kindly give of their time to nourish our community with faith formation and spiritual support.
The St. Cecilia Choir, directed by Mrs. Ebent, provides an atmosphere of beauty that encourages prayerful and reverent contemplation.
ADORATION OF THE BLESSED SACRAMENT
At Aquinas Academy, we offer adoration of the Blessed Sacrament for our students on every first Friday of the month, followed by Benediction.
"Do you realize that Jesus is there in the tabernacle expressly for you - for you alone? He burns with the desire to come into your heart...” (St. Therese of Lisieux).
At Aquinas, we are very blessed to have Christ present with us in the tabernacle of our chapel. Each class visits the chapel daily as part of thier formation and to nourish their own prayer life.
