CGHS celebrates school-wide Masses at various times of the year: the opening of school, Holy Days of Obligation, class Masses, and an end of the year all-school Mass


Each quarter students and faculty are encouraged to receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation.  On the designated days, local priests of the neighboring parishes join us in the Chapel of the Holy Family to hear confessions.  The students come to the Chapel during their Theology classes and spend some time in quiet prayer or preparing their confession.  Parents, faculty and staff are also encouraged to use this opportunity to receive the sacrament.

Advent and Lent

Throughout the Fridays in Lent, Liturgy of the Hours Noon Prayer is prayed with students and faculty. At these prayers, students are encouraged to lead the prayer. The Liturgy of the Hours is prayed at the beginning of each lunch period.
The Season of Lent begins with the Distribution of Ashes at a school-wide assembly. The students and staff of CGHS commemorate this time for reflection and self-denial with Mass, penance and the Stations of the Cross. There is no meat served in the cafeteria on the Fridays of Lent in accordance with the Lenten guidelines of the Catholic Church.
