Nazareth Academy High School is a community of faith. Faculty and students become involved in all aspects of the school’s spiritual life. Opportunities are provided, through which students deepen their relationship and understanding of themselves, God and His Church. All are invited to share in the coordination and planning of the liturgies and prayer-services throughout the year. The school minister is available during school hours and other school related functions.
Some examples of experiences provided to foster a climate of faith include:
• Daily morning prayer over the public address system
• Prayers before the start of each class
• Liturgical class celebrations
• Seasonal liturgies and special liturgies for community and staff celebration
• One day annual faculty and class retreats required for all
Kairos is a four day intensive retreat held for students during the Senior Year. During Kairos, which translates as “God’s time,” the students are invited to a deeper awareness of their own goodness as well as the importance of God and others in their lives.
Usually three or four Kairos retreats are scheduled each year. The retreat is an option to the one day class retreat that all students must attend.
