vocation is unique. Some receive his call earlier in life,
others later. The Legion’s apostolic schools are a service we
provide to teenagers who are seriously considering the priesthood, and
to their families. Four areas of formation are covered to
foster the vocation: the spiritual, intellectual, human and apostolic.
of the school is friendship with Christ. We help the
young men grow in their love for Jesus through prayer,
along with a special devotion to Mary. Each day the
students come together for morning prayers, Mass, a half-hour directed
prayer, the Rosary, a ten-minute gospel reflection, Adoration of the
Blesses Sacrament and Benediction, and night prayers.
The academic formation is
College Preparatory level (University preparatory in Canada), with courses each
year in English (and French in Canada), Mathematics, Science, History,
Geography, Religion, Music, Composition, Public Speaking, Latin, with the addition
of Spanish and Greek in the senior years. The lay
teachers are highly qualified and give personal attention to each
student. Understanding and critical thinking is fostered, as well as
memorization, and written and oral exercise.
Human formation and especially character
formation is key to the program. Recreation and sports include
soccer, basketball, hiking, swimming; with ice hockey and skiing depending
on the local climate. A spirit of responsibility is fostered
through assigned tasks in the upkeep and maintenance of the
school; healthy friendships are developed in teamwork, a spirit of
universal charity and cheerful service to others. Cleanliness, order, punctuality,
friendliness, obedience and respect, perseverance, kindness and dependability are also
valued and inculcated.
|Sports are a part of the integral formation program|
The opportunities for apostolic work depend on local
conditions, and they usually include helping teach CCD, participating in
running local clubs, taking care of the organization of retreats
and special events at the school, and door-to-door missions.

as long as the parents are in agreement with and
support the school’s pedagogy and spirituality.
