Marin Catholic has a vibrant spiritual life on and off campus. Mass in the chapel at 7:30am and daily prayer over the public address system start each of the school days. Parents are welcome to join in all our Eucharistic celebrations. Students participate in numerous ways in the ten school liturgies or Masses each year. Each Mass is hosted by a particular student group (grade level, particular club, or student organization) and the MC Liturgy Choir leads the congregation in song.
Other seasonal Masses and prayer services run throughout the year. Reconciliation is offered during Advent and Lent, as well as lunchtime Mass. This past year the Thanksgiving Prayer Service was led by selected senior speakers attesting to what they were thankful for and was attended in conjunction with Grandparents Day.
The St. Vincent de Paul Club and the Respect Life Club are vibrant organizations that live out the gospel values. Numerous drives are held each year to help those less fortunate in our community.
The Campus Ministry Department, led by the team of Michelle Vollert, Sally Jaeger, Lianni Castro, Francisco Ortiz, and Renee Ewert offers students a chance for numerous leadership opportunities. All retreats have a core team of students who assist the Campus Ministry team in the planning and implementation of the day’s events. This student core team dedicates hours into training and preparation, and most report that they receive more reward than they expect or wish for in the experience. Some of these trained leaders have also assisted in confirmation retreats and have reached out to the greater community. Many alumni are involved in these programs.
The Campus Ministry programs all are motivated by a sense of developing both personal and communal spirituality. Discernment is encouraged while reflecting on the values of the gospel and the teachings of Jesus and applying these to our culture today. If you wish to learn more about the Catholic faith, we welcome your questions.
