STUDENT LIFE - Spiritual Life
As Man's ultimate end is God, The Lyceum puts the highest priority on the immortal souls of its students. Each day the school begins by praying as a community. Each class, in fact, begins and ends with a prayer.
At the Lyceum the students are exposed to many rites of Mother Church including both the Ordinary and Extraordinary Forms, as well as The Divine Liturgy of the Eastern Churches. In addition to the All School Mass, held at least once a week, daily Mass is available to the students during their lunch hour right next door at St. Gregory's Church of Sacred Heart of Jesus Parish.
Each day begins with the Lauds of the Liturgy of the Hours. These prayers are a wonderful Catholic tradition tracing back to the first centuries A.D. In the morning, the light of dawn brings to mind Jesus Christ, the light of the world, who came to dispel spiritual darkness. In addition, the Lauds recall that Christ first met his followers at dawn following the resurrection. The Office of Lauds reminds the Christian that the first act of the day should be prayer, and that one's thoughts should be of God before facing the cares of the day. The tranquil hours just before and at sunrise are often favorable to contemplation and prayer.
Each week, the student led Pro-Life club host a rosary to pray for the souls of the unborn.
