This Mass is for all the seniors and some of the faculty of the Diocese.  While we understand that some parents would like to attend this Mass, unfortunately the Cathedral is completely full and cannot accommodate parents.  You are welcome to attend any of the Masses that we have here at Covington Catholic.



Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament

Covington Catholic High School will have adoration with the Blessed Sacrament exposed during the school day every Friday beginning on September 7th, 2018 beginning after 7:10 am mass and ending at 3:00 pm in the Chapel.  We are hopeful that parents, grandparents, alumni, benefactors, etc. will join us in praying for the young men at Covington Catholic. We would like to have at least two people present throughout the day. Adorers must be Virtus trained.  Please click the link below to sign up for an hour time-slot.
