Spiritual Life

Immaculate Heart Central School is founded on the teachings and traditions of the Catholic faith. Its spiritual life is centered on deepening one’s relationship with Jesus. Both faculty and students are encouraged to participate in all opportunities for spiritual growth.

At IHC, students are encouragec to reflect individually on their relationship with God.

In addition to monthly Mass, IHC has two penance services; one during Advent and one during Lent. The students have the opportunity to seek Christ’s infinite love in mercy in the sacrament of Reconciliation. The graces received in this sacrament not only restore and deepen our relationship with God, but also deepen our relationships with each other.

Another unique event is the annual Retreat Day. This is a day where students have the opportunity to take some time out of the academic routine and enter into a day of prayer, reflection and group activities. The day often includes a dynamic speakers and Mass and Benediction.

Other opportunities offered for deepening our students’ spiritual lives are the March for Life pilgrimage to Washington, D.C., Stations of the Cross during Lent, and the May Crowning of our Blessed Mother.
