We welcome our Pope Francis as we continue praying for him and for the Church
Please join us in prayer for Pope Francis, the former archbishop of Buenos Aires, Argentina, Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio, our new pope and Bishop of Rome. May the Lord bless him with many years of Spirit-filled leadership for the Church and for the whole world.
Spiritual Life is at the very heart of the Cardinal Gibbons community and our programs serve to foster the spiritual development of our students, faculty, staff, parents, alumni and friends.
Through our daily and All School celebrations of the Eucharist, our prayer at the beginning and end of the school day, our service to the community, our student-led retreats, and the promotion of our Catholic identity and vocations, we seek to put Jesus Christ at the very center of all we do at Gibbons.
Through Spiritual Life at Gibbons, young people talk about their faith openly and practice it with enthusiasm alongside their classmates, peer leaders, faculty and staff, and Spiritual Life staff.
Our staff, resources, and programs are growing in vitality. Gibbons now offers multiple overnight, voluntary retreats for every grade level.
During the 2010 school year, the Cardinal Gibbons Pallbearer Society was launched. The Pallbearer Society provides services for those who not otherwise have such services. The Pallbearer Society carries out the Corporal Work of Mercy to “Bury the Dead.”
We encourage you to seriously consider the many opportunities you have here to deepen your love for and relationship with Jesus Christ and the Church, to discover opportunities for prayer and worship, and to deepen your understanding of how God's love and grace are at work in your life.
We have a very dedicated and diverse Spiritual Life staff. Three full time faculty members serve in this department and work alongside other dedicated faculty and staff members who serve in liturgical ministry, as support staff and as Adult Retreat Leaders.
