A key component of the MBS philosophy is the school's purpose to pass on the faith and heritage of Catholic tradition, promoting Gospel values throughout our educational environment. In addition to daily Religion classes, students participate in continuous prayer and worship, weekly student-led Mass, and annual grade-level retreats. Liturgical events take place throughout the year, including Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament in August, a Living Rosary in October, a Nativity performance in December, St. Joseph's Altar in March, Stations of the Cross during the season of Lent, and May Crowning at the end of the year. Second graders are blessed to receive the Sacraments of First Reconciliation and First Eucharist. Opportunities for Reconciliation are also offered to third through eighth grade. Finally, each grade is responsible for a specific service ministry for which they complete various projects throughout the year.
