Parish Potluck - St. Patrick Church in Newport is hosting a potluck supper, which is open to the community, on March 29 after the 4 p.m. Mass. The potluck will be held in Assumption Hall and the parish has asked Mount Royal 6-12 grade students to be part of this event by helping serve drinks and dessert. This is a great opportunity for our students to be part of the larger community and assist in the parish. Please contact Katie Richardson at email@example.com if your child plans to participate. Thank you!

The Catholic identity of Mount Royal Academy influences every facet of our mission. We focus on keeping first things first. Each day begins with catechetical instruction as the first academic subject. Prayer is interwoven throughout the school day. In fact, students pray at the beginning of the school day with the morning offering, then we pray the Angelus prayer before lunch, and each day concludes with the recitation of the St. Michael prayer.
There are three main components of Campus Ministry at Mount Royal Academy:
1) Liturgical life and prayer
The liturgical and prayer life at MRA include the following: weekly Mass every Monday at 10:35am; a weekly recitation of the Holy Rosary every Friday morning; First Friday perpetual adoration, where students and parents adore the Eucharistic presence of Christ; the midday Angelus; daily meditations are shared with students during advent and lent; and parents also gather weekly in the school chapel to pray for each individual student by name. High school students listen to either the daily Gospel reading or a spiritual meditation during homeroom.
Students in the lower grade levels are consistently called to serve one another in the classroom, while at the same time contributing to other service projects for the sake of the entire school. Students in the high school are expected to complete a minimum number of service hours per year, and they also compile a service portfolio as part of their theology credits. Off campus service locations in the past have included Cor Unum meal center in Lawrence, MA, the Newport Senior Center, Upper Valley Pregnancy Care Center, and numerous senior citizen homes in the surrounding area. The entire school also participates in the Rice Bowl campaign and Pennies for Patients.
Retreats are crucially important for faith formation. High school students experience at least one retreat a year. Core Team Members in Campus Ministry take a leadership role by either organizing and implementing student-led retreats, or helping support retreat leaders that are brought in from outside the school community. In 2011, MRA was blessed to have acclaimed Catholic evangelizer and liturgical leader Martin Doman on campus.
