Spiritual Life

Communion Service

Daily Communion Services are celebrated at the beginning of lunch periods during Lent.


The retreat program is an integral part of life at St. Lucy’s. St. Lucy’s provides a series of mandatory, full day class retreats for freshmen, sophomores and juniors in order to foster their spiritual growth and to build community.

A major goal of St. Lucy’s is to encourage each student to grow towards mature Christian womanhood. The school provides opportunities for spiritual growth.


The first formal prayer of the day is read by the A.S.B. vice-president over the P.A. It is written by a member of the student body and reflects the overall atmosphere of the school on that particular day or in that particular season of the year. Religion classes begin with daily prayer.

Prayer Room

The school maintains a Prayer Room with the Blessed Sacrament in reserve. This room is open every day and is available to students before and after school and during break, lunch. It is also used by individual classes for group prayer. Students may write in the Book of Prayer Intentions and the Book of the Names of the Dead that are available in the Prayer Room. They are brought to the altar during each of the school Masses.

Join us on full days at lunch time (12:25pm) for prayer and fellowship. Everyone invited!

Liturgical Worship

Throughout the course of the school year, Mass is celebrated on special occasions. Sophomores receive their St. Lucy’s medals and juniors receive their class rings at an all-school Mass.


Kairos is a voluntary senior retreat held at the Mater Dolorosa Retreat House in Sierra Madre. This four-day retreat provides students with the opportunity to continue developing and deepening their relationship with self, others and God. Information regarding Kairos is mailed to all senior parents. Sign-ups take place in the fall for the retreats. The fees and permission slips are due prior to each retreat.

Christian Service

St. Lucy’s encourages students to participate in Christian Service activities. St. Lucy’s students put their faith into action through school-sponsored works of compassion, peace, and justice as well as activities sponsored by their local churches and other worshipping communities. They are also involved in activities sponsored by their local communities, hospitals and convalescent homes, service clubs, etc.

Christian Service Awards

At the end of each year, students are recognized for their Christian Service efforts at an all-school Awards Ceremony. A minimum number of hours at each grade level is required for recognition. Two St. Lucy's Seniors are recognized each year for outstanding Christian Service. They receive the Los Angeles Archdiocesan Christian Service Award presented by the Bishop during a Mass at the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angeles.
