Find out the ways CB is shaking up their religious services.

Mr. Chuck Zannetti and his Prayer and Faith class have been working diligently to improve our school liturgies in order to better our faith experience here at Christian Brothers High School.

According to Mr. Zannetti, all the improvements are made to “make mass more engaging for students.” He hopes that by making mass more engaging, students will get more excited about going to school liturgies, which will create what he hopes isĀ  “an environment where students can [better] connect with the sacred [service].”

The main focus in achieving this goal is: communication.

“We’re looking for a way to speak and communicate with students,” the enthusiastic religion teacher says, adding that, “the most important thing we prioritize is to get a priest [who can do that] effectively”.

The second thing Mr. Zannetti and the rest of the prayer and faith class want to do is improve the quality of our music. By this he means that they want to incorporate more secular music like the Michael Jackson song “Heal the World” that was played as our closing song in our previous all school liturgy.

Along with improving the music, they also wanted to incorporate more student produced art work.

“We found that students [really] like art,” Mr Zannetti says.

So he and the prayer and faith class found a way to embed that into the CB liturgical experience by hanging up beautiful paintings by the students in Mr. McIntosh’s art class.

The Prayer and Faith class are always looking for ways to improve the quality of mass which is why they have been trying to evaluate all the liturgies in order to get more student input. Many improvements have already been made in response to student generated feedback, like enlarging the print on the PowerPoints so that they are easier to read.

So if you have any ideas that you think will better our liturgical experiences here at CB, Mr. Zannetti and his students are always anxiously awaiting your opinions.
