Dominican life is steeped in liturgical and personal prayer, and in study as a pursuit of truth, the ultimate Truth being Christ Himself. So, too, is the life of our students. Each day not only begins and ends in prayer, but students are taught what it means to pray and how to pray: to be in communion with God. The sacraments are made available to our students as a means to holiness.At the heart of all Dominican life is the Eucharist, celebrated and received in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. Students are also enriched by regular opportunities to receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation and to develop their lives of personal and communal prayer. Devotion to Christ, to the Blessed Virgin Mary, and to the saints is fostered daily as models of virtue and integrity. Students are also taught a love and respect for the Church and her ministers.
