At JSerra, we take the formation of our students’ faith and character as seriously as the development of their intellectual life, as we believe that we are all sons and daughters of God.
At the center of our culture is our all-school Masses on Wednesdays in which students and staff are highly involved. Many parents, alumni, and members of the community also regularly attend. This weekly liturgy features dynamic music plus homilies from our chaplain and local visiting priests.
During the pandemic we have divided our student body into four groups based on their 4th period classes; thus, each group attends Mass every four weeks and the groups that do not attend Mass will use that time for Faith Formation and study hall.
Sacrament of Reconciliation and Discipleship
JSerra students are provided with regular opportunities to receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation throughout the school year. Catholic and non-Catholic students alike are also able to receive spiritual guidance from our chaplain, visiting pastors, or campus ministers throughout the year, and are invited to meet regularly in small groups for personal discipleship.
JSerra offers daily Eucharistic adoration in our campus chapel at 7:15 a.m. on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays when school is in session. All members of the greater JSerra family are encouraged to make use of this grace-filled opportunity to spend dedicate time in prayer before our Lord.
The JSerra community offers prayers for everyone in need. All prayer requests are submitted online and are offered up in a general petition at each Wednesday Mass, once a month at Moms in Prayer, and during our Friday holy hour.
"Going to Mass with my classmates helps me stay calm and recharges me for the rest of the week."
