For close to 70 years, Catholic Central has been part of part of our school board, part of downtown London. Generations of Crusaders have walked these halls, worshipped together at school and at St Peter's Basilica, and learned from amazing staff and from each other.
The Chapel in our school is central to everything in our building; in the same way our faith should be central in our lives. The Chaplaincy Leader is available in an office located beside the Chapel, to serve as a listening ear in a safe, confidential place for students and staff.
Chaplaincy offers resources and support for students to help them deal with various issues, and sponsors outreach programs such as food drives, and other fund-raising activities, to raise awareness and contribute to helping others both inside and outside of our school community.
Throughout the school year, many opportunities are offered to our community to worship together through Masses and various liturgical celebrations. Classes are also welcome to plan and experience class Masses or prayer services in our Chapel.
Advent and Lenten Days of Reconciliation are offered where local priests generously come to the school to offer our community the opportunity to receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation. Our annual Prayer Crawl and other prayer opportunities support our students as they deepen their relationship with our God.
We are extremely blessed to be able to celebrate our school Masses at St. Peter's Cathedral Basilica, to have St. Peter's Basilica as our Parish.
St Peter's Cathedral Basilica
553 Clarence Street
All of the full school Masses are celebrated at St. Peter's Cathedral Basilica. Students will be bussed directly to St. Peter's except for the Welcome Mass and Ash Wednesday where they will walk from the school.
Catholic Central School Prayer
Loving God - Through these halls, we walk with you.
Grant us the grace to find your light within us.
We stand before you –
The past, present and future of Catholic Central.
Teach us goodness – to embrace diversity.
Teach us discipline – that we may walk in your love.
Teach us knowledge – to live and to learn.
Blessed Mary, Patron of CCH,
guide us that we may follow your example –
To choose love over hate,
Good over evil,
Excellence over mediocrity.
Lord – watch over us and be with us on our crusade to deepen our faith. Amen
