“Faith is not just a system of knowledge, things we are told; at the heart of it is a meeting with Jesus.  This meeting with Jesus, among all those other meetings we have need of, is the truly decisive one,” says Pope Benedict XVI.  Guided by St. Anselm’s principle of “faith seeking understanding,” religion is a required subject at Mount de Sales for all four years. The purpose of this study is to help students develop and deepen their relationship with God and form their consciences in light of the teachings of the Catholic Church. 

In an effort to foster a love of neighbor that expresses a lived faith, the students are required to complete a certain number of service hours each year. They are also encouraged to participate in the social outreach activities offered by the Campus Ministry Office, the Student Council, the Teens for Catholic Action club, and the Sodality.

The Academy also provides opportunities to promote students’ spiritual growth, including daily morning Mass, monthly Eucharistic adoration and the sacrament of Reconciliation, first Friday all-school Masses, annual class retreats, and other Campus Ministry events and activities throughout the year.
