Participation in the full splendor of the daily liturgical and Sacramental life of the Church ranks first among the activities available to St. Mary’s College students. Resident priests offer multiple daily Masses, and the College Chaplain is available for spiritual direction by appointment and confession on a scheduled weekly basis. College men may serve the Altar or sing in the Gregorian Schola; all college students may petition to join the polyphonic choir. Students—especially boarding students from mission chapels—may for the first time have access to a complete liturgical calendar; this continuous exposure to the Mass, Sacraments, Liturgies, and Divine Office provides the supernatural foundation on which students can confidently build their adult lives. Students have the opportunity to participate in numerous extra-curricular activities. The college maintains a drama club; parish functions, social events, and opportunities for live musical performance take place throughout the year. St. Mary’s is conveniently located between the major university cities of Lawrence and Manhattan, the capital city of Topeka, and a short drive from Kansas City. Students make frequent cultural outings to the opera, symphony, plays, and other events. Extra-curricular and club sports are also available.
