At Archbishop McCarthy High School, we believe that all education must lead to the development of a mature faith and concrete and personal relationship with Jesus Christ through his Church and sacraments. Emphasis is placed on instruction in the classroom, a common prayer life, participation in the Sacred Liturgy and the sacraments and community ministry and Christian service.
Mass is celebrated in the Chapel several times each week, on Holy Days, and at various times throughout the school year. Students are required to attend monthly all-school Masses. Parents and alumni are welcome. Students serve in music ministry, and as lectors, ushers, altar servers, and Eucharistic Ministers.
The Community Ministry Service Program provides students the opportunity to share their time and talents with the community. All students are expected to complete a total of 100 hours in their four-year career at Archbishop McCarthy High School.
Archbishop McCarthy High School’s mission of educating tomorrow’s leaders is reinforced through daily Theology classes following the curriculum provided by the United States Bishops, teaching the treasures of the Roman Catholic Faith.
This office seeks to work with the entire school community in developing and implementing the spiritual purpose and mission of the school by offering each student an organized spiritual program, which with God’s grace, leads to a closer encounter with God.
