If you’re looking for a high school to help your son grow into the kind of Catholic man you always wanted him to be, check out Gregory the Great Academy. Set in the rolling foothills of the Poconos in Northeastern Pennsylvania, this affordable all boys boarding school offers a liberal arts education alongside a spirituality that offers liturgy both from the East and West, as well as an astounding music program, a state and national winning Rugby program, a juggling program, and is recently offering a small agricultural program as well. The school offers an unique education that educates the different facets of the whole person: the body, the mind, and most importantly, the soul. They do this while striving to find a balance between all of these aspects. Check them out at:

Have you ever been crazy with interest for the Chant of the Liturgy of the Hours sung daily, in real time, in Latin, by French Benedictine monks, but can never find a website that offers it? Well, than today’s your lucky day, because the monks of the Abbaye Sainte-Madelaine du Barroux have just that. In all seriousness, though, this is a great resource if you have a devotion to the Liturgy of the Hours, or are just interested to hear how the monks have been praying for a millennia and a half. The sites are both very accessible as well.
