Spiritual Life is Central to the DNA of Morris Catholic
Daily prayer and liturgies, school liturgies, retreats, religious symbols, and an atmosphere of respect are all important components of our Catholic faith. All students also take a four-year program in Theology classes. We feel that our statement of purpose – To educate young men and women to grow in character, community and commitment through a knowledge of the love of Christ – is omnipresent in our mindset and actions, and guides us in all that we do for our students and school community .

We feel that it is important for young people to set aside time for personal reflection and renewal of faith. Retreat days are held for each class throughout the school year. Retreats for MCHS students are organized through the Campus Ministry Office and are held during the school day.
Retreats for upperclassmen may be conducted off-campus to provide students with a non-distracting setting. Each fall and spring our high school also hosts morning retreats for 7th and 8th grade students who attend local elementary schools.
It is also beneficial for our faculty and staff to participate in days of reflection, which are held twice each year. Our Parent Board also organizes faith-building activities for parents and guests to address important current social issues in relation to our faith and Church.
