Let us remember that we are in the Holy Presence of God...
Saint John Baptist de La Salle... Pray for us!
Live, Jesus in Our Hearts... Forever!

Every class at Calvert Hall begins and ends in prayer. This invocation from Saint John Baptist de La Salle, Founder of the De La Salle Christian Brothers reminds us of our connection with God and the importance of prayer throughout the day. 

Our Mission

A key pillar of the Office of Campus Ministry is to foster the faith-sharing and spiritual aspect of every student at Calvert Hall College High School through the unique integration of the celebration of the Eucharist and community prayer. Whether through school-wide Liturgies, class prayers, Reconciliation and Adoration services, or faith-sharing and prayer opportunities, members of the Calvert Hall community come together to worship in a prayerful and reflective way. The spiritual lives of our students are very important. Throughout the year all classes are given these unique opportunities to gather in faith-sharing:

Opportunities for Prayer and Liturgy

List of 6 items.

  • School-wide Liturgies

    Held throughout the school year, the entire student body is given a chance to gather together on Holy Days and other occasions in celebration of the Eucharist. Mass at The Hall is “for the guys, by the guys.” Students take leadership roles in all aspects of the Liturgical service – from lectors and altar-servers to Eucharistic Ministers and our very own student-led Liturgy Band.
  • Daily Communion Services

    Communion Services are held daily in the Chapel of Our Lady of the Star at 7:45 a.m. (Monday through Friday). Join Calvert Hall faculty, staff, administrators, and students beginning the school day with sharing of the Word of God.
  • First Friday Mass

    Every first Friday of the month, Calvert Hall shares in the Eucharist. We welcome one of our visiting priests for this intimate Liturgy held in our Chapel at 7:45 a.m.
  • Seasonal Prayer Services

    Prayer opportunities and faith-sharing small groups are held during the seasons of Advent and Lent to give students a chance to reflect during these special times of the Church calendar.
  • Sports Team Prayer Services

    Three times a year, during each sports season (Fall, Winter, Spring) all level athletes (Fresh/Soph, Junior Varsity, and Varsity) come together for a prayer service.  This is just one way to remind our athletes that their gifts and talents come from God and that prayer is part of being on any successful team.
  • Reconciliation and Eucharistic Adoration

    Both are offered throughout the school year to encourage the Calvert Hall community to reflect and offer prayers within the context of sacrament and ritual.

Get Involved!

Students are welcomed and encouraged to use their particular talents and gifts in service of the faith community; as Ministers of the Word, Communion, and Music. Formation and reflection sessions are held at the beginning of each year for those who wish to serve for the first time – and for students who have had previous experience in liturgical ministry. A member of the Campus Ministry staff coordinates each liturgical ministry. That person works closely with students to set a prayerful tone for their liturgical roles.

Liturgical Roles

List of 3 items.

  • Ministers of the Word

    Do you think of yourself as a good “story-teller?" Lectors are charged with the task of telling our family story; the story of salvation. This is the ministry of the Lord’s voice calling out in the midst of God’s people. We invite you to consider proclaiming the Word of God at school-wide Liturgies.
  • Ministers of Communion (Eucharistic Ministers)

    Do you see Christ in others? Do you feel called to welcome the least among us? Extraordinary ministers of the Eucharist are charged with the work of ministering Christ’s body and blood to the Body of Christ – the Church. Eucharistic Ministers serve at approximately 7 school-wide Liturgies.

    *Must be a Junior or a Senior.
  • Ministers of Music (Liturgy Band)

    Do you have musical talent in vocal singing or instrumentals and enjoy leading others in worship? The Liturgy Band is comprised solely of students, and promised music for all school-wide Liturgies and prayer services.

    Auditions are held in the spring semester for the following year, and the Liturgy Band typically rehearses after school for about 3 weeks before each Liturgy.
