Sacramental Life

All School Masses & Prayer Services

School Liturgies are celebrated just about once a month. The Padua Franciscan High School Community holds that the Eucharist is the source and summit of our lives.

Eight all school Masses are celebrated on Holy Days of Obligation and several other special days throughout the school year, including the Feast of St. Francis of Assisi.

Students participate in prayer services throughout the year, both with their Theology Class and together with the entire student body.


The Sacrament of Reconciliation is offered to the Padua Franciscan Community during  Advent and Lent. Students celebrate the sacrament during their Theology classes.

Students are encouraged to reflect on God’s grace which is present in the Sacrament. We are all invited to experience the forgiveness which is present in the sacrament.
