All-School Masses are offered each First Friday and the Sacrament of Reconciliation is celebrated once a month. Students are welcome to attend early morning Masses with the Sisters each day.

We provide the most holy sacrifice of the Mass every first Friday of the month, on all major liturgical feasts, and on school celebrations throughout the year. The students are welcome to participate in lectoring, leading the prayer of the faithful, and in bearing gifts during the Offertory. Students participate at Mass on Sundays at St. Mary’s Parish Church or at the Cathedral of Saint Patrick in Norwich where they may also assist with the Faith Formation program. Benediction is also available on Sundays for those who wish to attend.

We give our students frequent opportunities to receive the sacrament of reconciliation. Students are invited to the chapel for quiet prayer in the chapel at anytime.

At the Academy, I am surrounded by people who do everything through Christ. Not only has living with the Sisters and seeing their relationship with God strengthened my faith, but I have also been motivated by my peers in so many ways, from seeing them wake up in the morning and go to Mass to listening to the “Bible in a Year with Father Mike Schmitz”! The girls take their faith very seriously and it is truly inspiring. I have never felt stronger in my faith before coming to AHF.
