Faith & Service

Campus Ministry at Helias Catholic High School strives to support the faith formation of the students, staff and school community by providing opportunities which lead to a deeper awareness of the message of God’s love and opportunities for worship, supporting the formation of a community of faith, and the promotion of service as a way of life.

Mass

  • Daily Mass is offered each school day in St. Pius X Chapel (Monday at 8:25 am and Tuesday-Friday 7:25 am)
  • All School Masses are held monthly in the Old Gym.
