Mount Michael Benedictine School admits students of any race, color, national and ethnic origins to all the rights, privileges, programs and activities generally accorded or made available to the students.
Benedictine values encompass a broad range of concepts that are central to life within a Christian community. It is quite possible to literally perceive dozens of values that can be deemed as Benedictine in nature. This a testimony to the breadth of “The Rule” and communal life established by Saint Benedict.
There are many opportunities for students to get involved at Mount Michael. Some are competitive, some are participatory. In either case it is all part of getting a well rounded educational experience.
September 1, 2021 was the day for the Freshmen Retreat. We have now entitled this retreat — Freshmen Formation. The class retreated for the day to the Pro-Sanctity Retreat Center, near Mount Michael.
It was a great day to spend some time away and to center on the Benedictine Values Mount Michael has chosen to emphasize— Community, Hospitality, Integrity, Moderation and Service.
Formation happens when we are malleable, like clay and we are open to being formed.
The alums of MM know this experience and desire to share their MM experience with the present students of MM. The freshmen this year were presented with The Rule of Benedict — a gift from the alums. Eric Crawford, John Von Dollen and Thomas Maliszewski were part of this day and the formation that was offered to the freshmen class.
