Faith Formation Brings Everything to Our Table

At Pius XI Catholic High School, we take the duty of Catholic education seriously. It is a part of everything we do as a community, both in and outside our classrooms – and we’re proud of that. But more importantly, we’re proud of our students – mindful, spiritual individuals with a true desire for service and a strong moral character.

Faith Grows Here

At Pius XI, students have countless opportunities to fuel their relationship with God and explore their faith in and outside our classrooms. From regular Mass and prayer times as a school to a focus on community service, students are engaged in their faith.

It’s an experience like none other. Students have the opportunity to take what they’re learning and what they hear at Mass, and then apply it immediately in their own lives. Pius XI students don’t just talk and understand the words of Jesus – they live His words and act on them every day.

Faith Leaders Thrive Here

We encourage our students to become active participants and leaders in their faith – and offer numerous opportunities for them to do so.

Big Buddies, Tablesetters, and Senior retreat leaders are three ways students can take their faith to a new level while sharing God’s word with their fellow students. It is also a remarkable way for students to develop necessary interpersonal and leadership skills for their own futures.

Faith Formation Lives Here

There is something for everyone in the faith community at Pius XI Catholic High School. We encourage you to explore, and when you have any questions – please reach out to Anne Haines, our Director of Faith Formation.
