Liturgy & Worship

Mass Schedule

The Second Vatican Council describes the Eucharist as "the source and summit of Christian life" (Lumen Gentium, #11).  At Archbishop Ryan High School, students, faculty, and staff have the opportunity to participate in Holy Mass each morning in our beautiful school chapel at 7:10 AM.  All are welcome.  The entire school community gathers every month to celebrate Mass in the auditorium.


Each school day and every class begins with prayer.  Faculty and students are encouraged to grow in friendship with Christ by developing a life of prayer.

Sacrament of Penance and Reconciliation

"I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly" (John 10:10).  To a world marred by sin, Jesus Christ came to give us the fullness of life by freeing us from the wounds of sin and division.  In the Sacrament of Reconciliation, our Savior truly forgives our sins and brings us healing, peace, and forgiveness.

At Archbishop Ryan High School, students have the opportunity to go to Confession during scheduled times or by appointment with the School Minister.  Confessions are heard every Friday during the first 10 minutes of each lunch period.

Exposition of the Most Blessed Sacrament

The Catholic Church teaches that in the Holy Eucharist, the body and blood, soul and divinity of Jesus Christ is truly, really, and substantially contained (cf. Catechism of the Catholic Church, #1374).  At Archbishop Ryan High School, the Most Blessed Sacrament is exposed for adoration after the morning Mass on Wednesday until dismissal.

“Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power and riches, wisdom and strength, honor and glory and blessing.”
(Revelation 5:12)
