BCHS Community Celebrates May Crowning - 5/10/2016
Today BCHS students, faculty and staff gathered for May Crowning. May Crowning is a tradition of the faith to honor the Blessed Mother Mary for her model of faith and fidelity to God. The Rite of May Crowning includes Marian hymns, the placing of a crown of flowers on a statue of Our Blessed Mother as sign of her Queenship, and prayers asking for her intercession and guidance towards Jesus. The statue of Mother Mary in front of the school will remain crowned for the month of May.
The Bosco Center is the home of Campus Ministry at BCHS. It’s a great place for teens to hang out, pick up a board game to play, get in a round of ping pong, find a snack and meet for various clubs and activities. The Bosco Center is open everyday after mass.
Class Day of Prayer
Each year a Day of Prayer is provided for each grade level in place of a day on campus. This is a great opportunity that students get to participate in which they have an intentional day to grow in their relationship with God and neighbor as a class.
For each Day of prayer students are to report to school as usual.
We will then leave on buses to the retreat location, a different Catholic Parish around the Valley for each class, and we will spend the day at that location. Finally we will return to campus before the end of the day bell (3:10PM)
Lunch is provided by Campus Ministry. Shareable drinks and snacks will be provided by the students, which are divided among the theology classes of each grade.
Students are to wear usual uniform bottoms along with either the uniform shirt or any BCHS approved spirit shirt.
Since the Day of Prayer occurs during a normal school day, participation is required. A permission slip must be turned in to participate.
Lastly, parents are invited to chaperone. If a parent wants to chaperone, they are allowed to take their child directly to the retreat site without having to first come to BCHS. Please let Campus Ministry know no later than a week in advance if this option will to be exercised.
For any question, please contact Fr. Loeffler or Mr. Vilcan
