Two Legion of Christ apostolic schools in the United States
now have new websites.
The newest website, http://www.icasnh.org/, was
recently launched by the Immaculate Conception Apostolic School in Center
Harbor, New Hampshire.
And at the beginning of the 2013-2014
school year, Sacred Heart Apostolic School in Rolling Prairie, Indiana,
launched its new website, http://www.sacredheartapostolicschool.org/wp/.
The user-friendly websites are designed
to answer the questions of prospective students and their parents,
offering details on school mission statements, programs, curriculum, accreditation and
tuition information and the formation process.
Both schools help their
students discern a possible vocation to the priesthood in a
missionary order, congregation or diocese. The goal of both schools
is to aid student discernment, with close support from parents,
in an age-appropriate and gradual manner. The schools offer a
college preparatory curriculum to build a solid foundation for a
future educational path into a major seminary, or the college
of their choice.
“We seek to develop the seeds of a
priestly vocation so that our students may more easily recognize
it and be in a better position to respond to
it,” said Fr. Steven Liscinsky LC, an alumnus and now
Dean of Studies at Immaculate Conception.
“The religious family spirit
and character formation we offer prepares the young man to
follow Christ with generosity of spirit and purity of heart,”
said Fr. Daren Weisbrod LC, Admissions director at Sacred Heart.
Legion of Christ has 12 apostolic schools across the world,
including the two in the United States, as well as
in Italy, Germany, Spain, France, Mexico, Brazil, Columbia, and Venezuela.
Heart Apostolic School in Rolling Prairie, Indiana opened its doors
in the fall of 2005 in the former Le Mans
Academy building. Since then, more than 100 students have studied
at the school, with 50% of graduates continuing on to
the Legion of Christ’s novitiate in Cheshire, Connecticut, or to
diocesan seminaries. The school is located in northern, rural Indiana
near Lake Michigan and the Warren Dunes.
Immaculate Conception Apostolic
School was founded, and approved by the New Hampshire State
Department of Education, in 1982. Since then, over 700 students
have gone through the program, with more than 60 alumni
now ordained priests. The school is located in New Hampshire’s
White Mountain and Lakes region.
Sacred Heart and Immaculate Conception both
offer active and challenging schedules that balance activities in four
quadrants: spiritual depth, character building, intellectual development and apostolic action.
