Marin Catholic has a vibrant spiritual life on and off campus. Daily prayer over the public address system and 7:30am Mass starts the school day. Parents are welcome to join in all our Eucharistic celebrations. Students participate in numerous ways in the ten school liturgies 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.
Below our are liturgical whole student body celebrations for the 2017-2018 school year:

Solemnity of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary
We come together the second day of school to remember how the Virgin Mary "having completed the course of her earthly life, was assumed body and soul into heavenly glory." She's a shining example of saying "Yes" to Christ.

Feast of the Holy Archangels
The Feast of the Holy Archangels celebrates the Angels who are pure spiritual beings, created by God, sent to help, protect and pray for us. Of them, we know of the three who are mentioned in the Bible: St. Michael, St. Gabriel, and of course, St. Rafael, who is known for aiding the sick and those in need of healing.

Ash Wednesday, a day of fasting, marks the beginning of Lent. Ash Wednesday derives its name from the practice of blessing ashes made from palm branches blessed on the previous year's Palm Sunday, and placing them on the heads of participants to the accompaniment of the words "Repent, and believe in the Gospel" or "Remember that you are dust, and to dust you shall return."

We send our seniors and their families off with the knowledge that God has a loving plan for each of them. This liturgy is celebrated off campus at Mt. Carmel Church in Mill Valley.
As part of our continuing faith formation for our students, MC hosts Holy Hour in the St. Francis Chapel on campus on a number of Sundays throughout the year.
Reconciliation is offered to the entire student body during Advent and Lent. Students go to Chapel in their theology classes and are invited to the sacrament or a blessing from a number of our local priests.
