Liturgy and Prayer

Liturgy & Prayer

The entire school comes together to attend Mass for large feast celebrations throughout the liturgical seasons. Click here to see all the masses for this upcoming school year. Parents are always welcome at these liturgies. We are building a strong foundation in our students through the reception of the Eucharist and the proclamation of the Scriptures at Mass.

Students are invited to be involved in all of our liturgies in many ways:

  • Lectors
  • Gift Bearers 
  • Servers
  • Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion (Diocesan training is offered to Seniors)
  • Music Ministry
In additions, all our theology classes attend Mass together once/semester. Students, faculty and staff have the opportunity to celebrate the liturgy weekly in the chapel during LION TIME on most Tuesdays. In addition, we offer Masses before some athletic contests and activities as they arise.

In addition, the sacrament of Reconciliation and Eucharistic Adoration are offered weekly in the Chapel with Fr. Caddy during LION TIME on most Thursdays. Fr. Caddy is also available by appointment.

The Powerhouse of Prayer

Our students have self-named the NDCL community “a powerhouse of prayer.” Whether a personal need for a special intention, the opening or closing of a school day, or a gathering to celebrate the Eucharist, prayer is at the heart of our community. Teachers begin each class with student-led prayer. Students become comfortable praying for and with each other and offer intentions throughout the day. Students initiate prayer at other times too, enlisting the Powerhouse when requested. So if you have a need for prayers, just let us know, x1059.


“Conversations with Caddy” Men interested in considering God’s call for their lives are invited to meet quarterly with Fr. Caddy in the Fr. Jim O’Donnell Campus Ministry Center during an extended LION TIME.   “Daughters of the King” is a group of upperclasswomen who commit to deepening their spiritual lives following the Kairos retreat. They meet every 4-6 weeks for support and discussion to consider where God is calling them.
