Prayer and Retreats
Our spiritual life at SJA is continually enhanced by various prayer services and retreats throughout the year. Faculty participates in shared prayer every Monday. Each year 8th Grade Peer Ministers lead the “See You at the Pole” Prayer Service during the Global Week of Student Prayer. Ms. Kasun plans with her class an Earth Day prayer service for the entire school. Every October, in honor of Our Lady of the Rosary, we pray a school-wide rosary. Mrs. Sabo coordinates the Tech Team to live stream morning prayer and announcements every day. Mrs. Amato coordinates end-of-the-day prayers as well.
Each year, the middle school classes participate in class retreats. 6th grade retreat focuses on care for self and decision making. 7th grade retreat is focuses on outreach and justice & peace. 8th grade focuses on finding God in all things, especially ourselves. Peer Ministers help plan and lead retreats along with the Campus Minister.
