Friars in the House: Focusing on Prayer

The Bishop Lynch High School House System is finishing its first full semester of implementation. As the house system moves into the new year, all houses and mentor groups will focus on prayer as the third quarter theme.
Working directly with the House Student Leadership Council, each house and mentor group has its own dedicated chaplain. These student chaplains will play a big role in the upcoming quarter, including leading daily all-school prayer in the morning. Various prayers and types of prayer will be explored.

“Faith life is such a central part of a student’s experience at Bishop Lynch. We want to enhance our community’s spiritual experience by having students take an active part in learning and praying together,” said Kristie Wainwright, co-director for BL’s house system.

Implementing a house system at Bishop Lynch High School was a big, bold move to improve pastoral care, mentorship and student leadership opportunities. Now that the BL House System is underway, it’s time to check in on the progress and hear from deans, mentors, student leaders, and students.
This weekly series provides a glimpse into all the ways – big and small – that students, and even staffulty, are being positively affected by the new BL House System. It will also address plans for growth and refinement during year one.
Faithful to Catholic Tradition and to our Dominican heritage of scholarship and service, Bishop Lynch High School promotes the development of the total person by bringing together a diverse community in a rigorous, college preparatory environment where students are taught to strive for excellence, seek truth, and work for justice in the world. - Founded in 1963
