Campus Ministry

What is Campus Ministry?

As a Catholic institution, Marist is committed to fostering the spirituality of each student. While we teach from the Catholic perspective, students of all faiths are welcomed and respected. Through example and explicit instruction in the daily Religion class, students learn the teachings of Jesus, as well as the Catholic traditions of prayer, service, community and justice. All students at Marist learn to incorporate into their lives the five Marist values which are deeply rooted in the Christian tradition: Respect, Responsibility, Perseverance, Honesty and Professional Behavior.

The Campus Ministry program enables each student to develop a life of prayer, as well as an on-going spiritual approach to life. Daily prayer, an extensive Retreat program, whole school masses and prayer services all serve as means for students to deepen their faith.

Campus Ministry also provides students with the opportunity to demonstrate concern for others. Whole school projects, such as the Thanksgiving Food Drive, enable students to share with those who are less fortunate. Opportunities for service to others are also encouraged. Marist endeavors to develop in each student concern for others, a spirit of community, a well-developed spirituality and an acute sense of justice.

Students in Campus Ministry

Any student who lives the Marist values is eligible to be a member of Campus Ministry. Many programs and projects throughout the year require student coordinators and all skills are needed. Sign-up is at the Campus Ministry office.

The Campus Ministry Office

Because of its central location, students are able to drop by the Campus Ministry office frequently. It is a comfortable space where they feel welcomed by candy, a cordial atmosphere and the availability of the Campus Minister. The Campus Minister welcomes interruptions and offers a loving and affirming presence.
