The Eucharist

The Eucharist is central to the spiritual life of the Felician Sisters and is a focal point of their heritage. As a ministry of the Felician Sisters, the Eucharist is a fundamental part of the experience of faith life here at OLSH.

Eucharistic Procession

Each September the OLSH community hosts adoration of the Blessed Sacrament followed by a Eucharistic Procession to commemorate the start of the school year and to celebrate the Eucharist. The bells toll from the chapel bell tower as the procession winds throughout the entire OLSH campus. Art teacher Mallory Hurley '07, invites her students to create sidewalk drawings throughout campus to enhance the celebration.

The OLSH Chaplain carries the Blessed Sacrament in a procession led by a color guard of OLSH students and the Knights of Columbus, followed in procession by the entire student body. The culmination of the celebration is benediction at the statue of Our Lady of the Sacred Heart.


Eucharistic Adoration

The Felician Sisters encourage and welcome the students to Eucharistic Adoration in their chapel. Students are permitted to respectfully spend time in the Chapel during study halls in the presence of the Eucharist.
