Mass of the Holy Spirit
Posted 09/05/2017 09:43AM


In keeping with a Jesuit schools tradition dating back to the 16th century, Jesuit High School celebrated Mass of the Holy Spirit on Friday (Sept. 1). Following Mass and grade-level photos, students were dismissed for Labor Day weekend, returning to classes on Tuesday, Sept. 5.

Recognized as the spiritual beginning of the new school year, Mass of the Holy Spirit has been celebrated annually by Jesuit schools since 1548 in Messina, Sicily, at the first Jesuit school. The rector of the Jesuit High School community, Fr. Paul Deutsch, S.J., was the celebrant this year.

At Jesuit, we are responding in a dynamic way to the changing needs of education in the 21st century.
It is an exciting era, with the constant infusion of new technology and the increasing emphasis on student engagement in the learning process.
In 2014 Jesuit claimed the FHSAA's highest honor among all Class 5A schools in academics (Academic Team Champion) and athletics (All-Sports Award).
Each and every gift makes a difference to the students of Jesuit High School as they strive to become "Men for Others."
