As part of our religious environment, our principal works with our Campus Minister to infuse the teaching of the Bible into day-to-day activities. For example, every morning the entire student body and faculty gathers for prayer in the student center. Prior to dismissal, Principal Briggs leads the school in prayer, recites a quote from Blessed Mother Teresa, and asks the students to pause for a moment of silence to "dedicate two minutes to God."

In addition to daily religion study, MTCES holds school Mass twice a month and on Holy Days. Students take leadership roles in planning both Masses and prayer services. They also serve as lectors, Eucharistic Ministers, servers, and music ministers. Students participate in a school wide retreat, Seder Meal activity, and Stations of the Cross during Lent. During the months of October and May, they pray a decade of the rosary each day and learn about the four mysteries. They also participate in a May crowning.

Community Outreach

Following in the footsteps of Mother Teresa, the student body has a rich history of serving the less fortunate. Every year, students offer companionship to the residents of Hawthorn Glen nursing center and assisted living facility; food for the world's hungry; volunteer hours to a myriad of area charities; and monetary gifts benefiting the ill, orphaned, and downtrodden.

In addition, the MTCES Student Council chooses charities to support each month and holds fundraisers to support those causes. MTCES also requires that all junior high students complete a service project in 7th and 8th grade. This includes 20 hours of service for school, community, parish, and family.

Following is a list of some of the organizations MTCES regularly supports:

  • Reach Out Lakota
  • The Sisters of the Blessed Sacrament Orphanage in Haiti
  • Fairwood Elementary School (Hamilton City School system)
  • Hawthorn Glen
  • Paige's Princess Foundation
  • Crohn's & Colitis Foundation of America
