Life Flight - Monthly Eucharistic Adoration at St. Mary's Ryken is held on the First Friday of every month (unless otherwise noted) when school is in session.
Daily Morning Prayer - Prayed everyday in the Chapel from the Church's Liturgy of the Hours, this universal prayer is a way to spiritually unite us and ground us in Christ as we begin a new day.
Daily Mid-Day Prayer - Prayed everyday in the Chapel from the Church's Liturgy of the Hours, this universal prayer is a way to spiritually unite us and ground us in Christ in the middle of our day, providing sustenance for the continuation of the day.
Chaplains/Clergy -We are blessed to have Rev. Lawrence Young and Rev. Scott Woods serving as our school chaplains along with Deacon Bob Connelly who serves us on many occasions as deacon, and Rev. Kleinstuber who assists with the Retreat Progam. They, together with other priests of the Archdiocese of Washington help in so many ways to bring the fullness of the Gospel of Christ to our student community.
