Why Daily Mass?
We believe that the Real Presence of Jesus in the Eucharist is the “source and summit” of our faith. For this reason, daily Mass is an integral part of our life here at St. Catherine of Siena Academy.
The world tells women that they need to be and do so many things. At St. Catherine, we try to help our students rest in who God says they are, His beloved daughter. Daily Mass provides the space for students to take a break from the hustle of everyday life, come together with their sisters, and allow God to fill them with His presence and His peace.
Regardless of faith background, we invite every young woman who attends SCA into a relationship with Jesus Christ. In discovering God’s personal love for her, she discovers the fullness of her identity. Many of our students, even those who are not Catholic, often comment on the difference that daily Mass has made in their lives.
Enjoy this short video on how daily Mass is important in the life of our students.
By centering the school day on the celebration of Mass, St. Catherine students have the opportunity to center their lives on Christ and to help their spiritual formation.
