October is the month dedicated to our Blessed Virgin Mary. Aside from praying the rosary, students of Jesuit schools show their devotion to our Blessed Mother by wearing a medal that has the image of Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal.
This practice is the famous October Medal. The medal is worn everyday during the month.
Starting October 1, we will again observe the October Medal tradition here in Xavier School. As in all devotions, this will be strictly voluntary. All students, faculty, and staff are encouraged to participate in this Jesuit tradition to honor the Blessed Mother.
