SPIRIT

Lexington Catholic maintains faith-based Christian values with a full-time chaplain and Spiritual Life team. Students of many faiths attend Lexington Catholic; 24% of our students are non-Catholic. Activities include a yearly retreat program, community service component for all students, an academic integrity pledge, and elected Honor Council.

The Spiritual Life Center, located near the cafeteria, is where students go to sign up for service events, retreats, and liturgies; to seek guidance or confession; to pray for vocations with the V Crew; or to simply discuss a stressful day. The Center coordinates weekly Chapel activities (Mass, Adoration, and LIFT youth gathering), monthly all-school Masses, retreats for each grade level, a Reconciliation Service once a semester, and a vibrant community service program.
 
Christian Service Program
Before graduation, students are required to complete at least 60 hours of service to those in need or to benefit God’s creation. We believe that the community service program makes an everlasting impact not only on those served, but also on the lives of our students, expanding their hearts and minds, and preparing them to be powerful and effective agents of change.
 
Service Club
The Spiritual Life Center also sponsors the Lexington Catholic Service Club, a group of almost 600 students and faculty who work together to plan and participate in service projects. The Service Club sponsors many service events and activities to help students meet the requirement, including the St. Vincent Mission Christmas Drive, Dance Blue, Bowling with Buddies, a canned food drive for God’s Pantry, and much more.
