St. Michael is privileged to have its own Chapel, the focus of the spiritual character of our school. The chapel is used for private prayer, class liturgical celebrations, the celebration of mass, as well as weekly gatherings for staff prayer, the social justice team and the Mass Band. The chapel is a place where individual students and classes can experience their spirituality on a personal level. Always open to welcome students, the Chapel, located off the main hallway, is a refuge for all. The chapel at St. Michael is blessed with a wall of beautiful crosses some of which were made by students, others which come from around the world. Set aside some time during your day to sit in quiet reflection.
High school chaplaincy is a ministry of presence to staff, students and their families. Our chaplain is available to listen, to provide spiritual direction, to visit hospitals and funeral homes, and to provide resources in crisis situations. As well, through our chaplaincy program, daily prayer, community worship of the various liturgical seasons, retreats, resource to faith across curriculum and social action projects are animated. Our chaplain also fosters liaisons with local parish communities and the diocese.
St Michael High School celebrates faith in a number of ways. Our days begin with prayer, calling all to be mindful of God’s presence among us as we journey through each day. Our school community celebrates the Eucharist with masses throughout the year. Liturgies of the word, Ash Wednesday liturgies and other smaller liturgies take place in the school chapel or within classrooms. Religion classes visit the chapel with their teacher to take some time to reflect on faith, to discuss ideas and to pray together. All students and staff members are welcome to visit the chapel to spend some time in quiet.
