The following are living the faith activities planned throughout the year: paraliturgical celebrations, masses, participating in food drives, the ShareLife campaign, performing for and working with the sick and elderly in hospitals. Our peace education/peer mediation program offers students the opportunity to resolve conflicts in a reconciliatory fashion.
