Religious Development

Students in the Madonna community must keep in mind that developing and nurturing a Christian atmosphere and faith is our top priority. Liturgies are offered for the entire student body and faculty on a regular basis throughout the school year. In addition, class liturgies are periodically offered.

The Sacrament of Reconciliation, school-wide prayer services and class retreats form another part of the students’ faith community. Four years of service are required to graduate and receive a diploma. A minimum of 10 hours of service will be required of all seniors and juniors, and 5 hours of service will be required of all sophomores and freshmen.

A written evaluation of the student’s service is required from those who were served by the student, listing the experience and time spent performing each individual service. The religion requirements may not be waived for non-Catholic students. The concept of a Catholic school is to transmit Christian Doctrine. All students at Madonna will take the required religion courses for graduation.
