Cor Jesu is a program which ministers to both our Middle School students and to High School students (including our graduates) as part of our School’s Mission to nurture the spiritual lives of our students and help them to “become saints”. It includes a monthly service ministry to the homeless, etc.

FROM FR. MATTHIAS: THANK YA'LL for a great turnout in service on December 22nd for our homeless brothers and sisters! After making 200 lunches, our youth, families, and young adults went to Skid Row, along with the Franciscans and Bro. John, to distribute the food, offer attentive love and prayer, and help the Franciscans build relationships among the homeless, leading to further assistance. Also, THANK YOU to everyone who DONATED CLOTHING in December for the use of our brothers and sisters in need. Over 400 pounds of clothing were received! God bless you all!

Monthly "DISCIPLESHIP NIGHTS" are like a RETREAT rolled into one evening a month. They combine a teen social, relevant group studies, and deep prayer. After going deeper into age-appropriate, retreat-like (non-classroom) study & reflection on St. John Paul II's "The Theology of the Body," the youth will end the evening connecting with the Risen Jesus in a dynamic Holy Hour (opportunity for Confession!). The next day, we will go out to serve. The schedule for DISCIPLESHIP NIGHTS is as follows:
6:00 p.m. in the Hall: Social, including light food, music, games, ping pong, etc.
6:30 p.m.: Meeting of DISCIPLESHIP GROUPS:
High School Group (ice breakers, prayer, a presentation, dynamic videos, and brotherhood/sisterhood small group discussions);
Middle School Group (ice breakers, prayer, age-appropriate teaching/videos, energy activities, small group discussion);
Parent Study Group (by Cor Jesu parents in leadership): Using Catholic studies through "Formed.org," we will go deeper into the Faith. (Please note that we will have a CHILDREN'S ACTIVITY COORDINATOR so that the whole family can be involved!)
