The objective of the Campus Ministry Program at St. Catharine Academy is to provide the students with opportunities to deepen their personal faith through involvement in activities celebrating the faith community through various forms and styles of worship. Participation in the Campus Ministry program will help individuals realize their significance in relationship to school, family, Church and the world community. Students will be encouraged to share their gifts and to minister to the needs of others. The activities of Campus Ministry will serve to raise consciousness about and encourage action regarding contemporary moral and social problems, as well as to urge people to work toward a more just, safe and peaceful world.
The yearly retreat program will be coordinated by Campus Ministry and will be designed to serve the needs of each grade level. The Christian Service Program is a four-year requirement and will be coordinated through Campus Ministry. Students will be given opportunities to serve within our school community and in their neighborhoods in activities that are meaningful to them.
Campus Ministry will engage students in preparing and serving at grade level Liturgies and prayer services. Members of Campus Ministry may lead the school in morning prayer and maintain a book of intentions in the school chapel. Participation in Campus Ministry will offer students an opportunity for students to develop faith sharing communities within our school.
