  • A unique part of Graduation at West Catholic is the opportunity to participate as a faith community in an eight hour Prayer Vigil in honor of the Senior Class. The Prayer Vigil is offered in conjunction with the Senior All-Night Party.  It offers parents, grandparents, siblings, friends, and all those who are part of the West Catholic community a time to reflect and pray for our seniors.
  • The prayer vigil will be held in the Maria Goretti Chapel (with entrance from the hallway outside the cafeteria) beginning at 9 pm on Wednesday, May 24, until 5 am on Thursday, May 25.
  • Visitors will have the opportunity for private prayer and adoration in front of the Blessed Sacrament.
  • Senior prayer intentions and pictures will also be present in the chapel. Visitors are encouraged to write and leave personal notes to any senior. (Writing material will be available)
  • Everyone is invited to come whenever convenient and stay as long as they like. It is a very peaceful, meaningful experience and will provide long-lasting benefits to our seniors. Please come and be a part of this very special tradition,
