Clubs & Activities

GOD SQUAD

Sponsors: Fr. Sam Brand, Mr. Langenfeld, Mr. Greene, Mrs. Seiler
 
Purpose: God Squad is a group of young men and women who desire to strive in their spiritual life with the same intensity as some students strive in sports, band, theater or other extracurricular activities.
 
What We Do: During Lent and through the first week of Easter students gather in the auditorium from 6:45-7:30am to go through various spiritual exercises. Every day includes Morning Prayer and then another spiritual exercise like the Rosary, Mass, Stations of the Cross, Spiritual reading, etc. Students may earn a varsity letter by participating at the varsity level for 2 years.
 

LITURGY CLUB

Sponsor: Fr. Sam Brand

What They Do: Liturgy Club serves the spiritual and liturgical life of the Bishop Carroll community.

Liturgy Club Mass Teams coordinate the planning of and the preparation for Holy Mass and other liturgies that are held in the AC, Cave or in the Madonna Chapel. These teams help create a sacred space where the Bishop Carroll community may gather for the Holy Eucharist and Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament.

Lectors assist during Holy Mass by proclaiming the word of God.  These young men and women must be truly qualified and carefully prepared for this office, so that the faithful will develop a warm and lively love for Sacred Scripture from listening to the reading from the sacred texts.

Altar Servers assist during Holy Mass and Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament.

The Servi Madonnae Eucharistiae serve the people of God through their knowledge in the sanctuary, their servant leadership in the community and their devotion in prayer.

Training for Mass teams, lectors and servers are held at the beginning of the semester.
