Throughout the school year, Masses and prayer services mark significant events, including the Opening School Mass, Family-Alumni Mass, Thanksgiving,  Ash Wednesday, Junior Ring Mass, Holy Week Living Stations of the Cross and the Closing School Mass and Graduation. In addition, all Holy days of obligation are celebrated with all school Mass. All school liturgies are celebrated in the Sisters of St. Joseph Motherhouse Chapel.


The Nazareth Academy Service Team consists of the following committees:
Peacebuilders Outreach, Hodgkins Tutoring,  Liturgical Prep Committee, F.I.S.H.(Friends in Service and Hospitality) Retreat Planning and Liturgy Planning. All Nazareth students are encouraged to become involved in the Service Team, which is a student-run organization with an executive committee and co-chairs for each committee. Service Team leaders and Homeroom representatives conduct annual drives, including Thanksgiving, Christmas and Lent.


Freshman and Sophomore retreat days are planned and conducted by the Campus Ministers and Senior leaders. The Freshman and Sophomore days take the place of a regularly schedule school day and take place on the school campus.
Juniors attend an overnight retreat at the Christian Brothers LaSalle Manor Retreat Center in Plano, IL. Seniors are given the opportunity to attend a Kairos Retreat.
