Mazzuchelli Catholic Middle School Ministry
Attending Mazzuchelli Catholic Middle School is an extension of one’s connection to the primary faith communities of family and parish. Middle School Ministry works in conjunction with parishes, parents, and staff to help students live out their Catholic faith through the four pillars of message, worship, community, and service. Middle School Ministry helps each student to more fully understand God’s love through these four pillars.
The School Chaplains, in conjunction with the Religion teachers, coordinate religious activities, assists staff and students in planning liturgies and serves as a liaison to the local parishes.
Students have Religion class each day. In addition, gospel values are incorporated in all other subject areas. Middle School Ministry supports the Religion curriculum through liturgical season enrichment resources.
School Masses are usually held twice per month. Prayer Services, Reconciliation, or other liturgical opportunities are also offered throughout the year. Middle School Ministry assists staff and students in the planning of and preparation for these events.
Middle School Ministry serves as a contact to the local parishes and other non-profit and/or religious organizations, relaying information to students about parish activities and coordinating visits from youth ministers, pastors, and other religious organizations.
Middle School Ministry helps facilitate service as a way of life for students by posting opportunities for service in school, parishes, and the community, as well as school-wide service projects and activities.
