Immaculate Conception Apostolic School, Center Harbor, New Hampshire.
Heart Apostolic School, Rolling Prairie, Indiana.
God’s time for each 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.
The heart 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
|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.
Again, every vocation
is unique. Some young men join in the seventh or
eighth grade. Others have come later when they started thinking
about the priesthood. Our doors are open to all, as
long as the parents are in agreement with and support
the school’s pedagogy and spirituality.
