The Power of Prayer

A Call for Special Intentions

Prayer is an important part of life at Central Catholic, helping to sustain and strengthen the school community.

All members of our community are invited to join us in prayer and to submit special intentions - whether you're in the school each day or if you graduated over 50 years ago.

Submit your Special Intention

Our Faith Community

Hands holding a Central Catholic medal

Students begin and end the school day with a prayer, the school community is invited to pray the Rosary weekly, and First Friday Liturgies are held monthly before school. The school community gathers for Liturgies on Holy Days and other special occasions, and prayer services are held throughout the year. The school has a comprehensive Campus Ministry and Retreat Program that contributes to spiritual development and the prayer lives of students, faculty, and staff.

"Pray For Us"

The students and staff of Central Catholic begin and end each school day with the following litany during announcements.

LEADER: Saint Marcellin Champagnat…

ALL: Pray for us.

LEADER: Saint Thérèse…

ALL: Pray for us.

LEADER: Mary, Our Good Mother…

ALL: Pray for us.

LEADER: And let us remember…

ALL: To pray for each other.

The vision of Saint Champagnat and the Marist Charism have defined CCHS since its founding, helping to forge a strong, faith-based community that serves as a resource and source of strength for students, families, teachers, and alumni.

The Memorare

Everyone is invited to join the school community in praying the Memorare together at the end of each school day (at 2:10 PM).

Remember, O Most Gracious Virgin Mary,
that never was it known that anyone who fled to your protection,
implored your help or sought your intercession,
was left unaided.
Inspired by this confidence,
I fly unto you, O Virgin of Virgins, my Mother;
to you do I come, before you I stand, sinful and sorrowful.
O Mother of the Word Incarnate,
despise not my petitions,
but in your mercy, hear and answer me.

We Are Marist

Guided by the vision of Saint Marcellin Champagnat, we are inspired to make the world a better place by serving and leading.

Marist Family Spirit distinguishes who we are and is the cornerstone of our Central Catholic community.
