The Heart of Bishop McCort

At Bishop McCort Catholic High School, the chapel stands as the heart of our Christ-Centered community, symbolizing our dedication to becoming Christ-Centered individuals. Our rich Catholic mission, guided by the words of St. Pope John Paul II, shapes every aspect of our education, integrating faith into both academic and extracurricular pursuits.

Prayer And Worship

Prayer is an important part of daily life at BMCHS, deepening our relationship with God. We begin our day, and many of our gatherings, with prayer.

Eucharistic Day of Adoration

A Eucharistic Day of Adoration is held periodically during the school year. The Blessed Sacrament is exposed (placed in a monstrance on the altar) so that students, faculty, and staff may go to the chapel to spend quiet time in reflection and prayer.

The Sacrament of Reconciliation offers forgiveness for our wrongdoings and a chance to live in God’s love. Penance Services during Advent and Lent involve the entire school community and area parish priests. Individual confession is also available monthly during lunchtime with parish priests.

At Bishop McCort, we honor the Second Vatican Council’s declaration that the Eucharist is the “source and summit of the Christian life.” Recognizing God as our source and ultimate goal, we gather as a school community to celebrate the Eucharist for various occasions, including school events, liturgical seasons, and special feasts.

At Bishop McCort, active participation in the Eucharist is encouraged through involvement in Liturgical Ministries. Students can serve as Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion, Lectors, Altar Servers, or Choir members, among other roles. Training for Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion is conducted with pastoral and Bishop approval, culminating in a commissioning ceremony during Mass.
