Faith & Service

Our Lady of Light Chapel

The focus of our Faith formation this year will be "Our Call to Holiness" with the hopes that our communal prayer life and Catholic Identity will increase on campus among the staff, students and parents. 

WE have a beautiful "Our Lady of Light" chapel to use each day during the week. WE welcome you into this sacred space to pray, read scripture, meditate, and grow in your Catholic faith.

Our chapel was built in 1966 and over the decades has had various changes, from orange chairs and bean bags to the wooden pews and lovely stained glass windows you see today.

Fr. Ernesto is offering every 2nd Wednesday - “Eucharistic Adoration” starting Wednesday, April 10th. WE have a group of parents who will be in our Chapel for one hour:

WE are thrilled to announce that Fr. Ernesto Madrigal and Fr. John Peter Pragasam will be joining the Central Catholic family!  Fr. Ernesto will be on campus each Wednesday from 8:30am to 1:00pm and Fr. John Peter will be on campus every Friday from 7:30am until 1:00pm.

Fr. Ernesto and Fr. John Peter will be available to students before school, during break, and lunch periods to offer spiritual counseling and guidance. They will also be celebrating masses, enriching religious instruction, and collaborating with our Campus Minister to support class retreats and other Central Catholic events.

As an educational institution rooted in the Catholic tradition, WE understand the importance of having clergy members present on campus and look forward to working in consultation with them on all ecclesiastical matters.
