As a school family, we join in the celebration of certain traditions and feasts. Each day, we gather for Morning Prayer in church. On Mondays, this includes adoration of the Blessed Sacrament.

Special celebrations:
September – Opening school Mass is celebrated with faculty, students and families followed by an opening school cookout hosted by the Parents’ group
October – Polish Heritage Month – we celebrate Mary under her title ‘Our Lady of Czestochowa’ November 22 – Blessing of Musicians (the junior choir, chant schola, and all who play instruments) on the Feast of St. Cecilia
December 6 – Feast of St. Nicholas – celebrated with a prayer service and a visit from St. Nicholas
January 6 – Feast of the Epiphany and the anniversary of the founding of our school – celebrated by blessing the classrooms and marking the doors
Holy Week – Special prayers are offered for the bishop and priests of the diocese
Easter Tuesday – Dyngus Day – a Polish tradition celebrating new life in Baptism – we douse one another with water as a sign of our baptism (sometimes this takes place later in the spring because of the weather)
April 11 – Feast of St. Stanislaus, Bishop and Martyr (in the Roman calendar) – celebrated with a prayer service at which the 7th graders receive their class rings
May 3 – Mary, Queen of Poland – celebrated with a May crowning
May 8 – Feast of St. Stanislaus, Bishop and Martyr (in the Slavic calendar) – celebrated with a prayer service

In addition, each class celebrates its patronal feast.
