Campus Ministry is sensitive to the religious and moral growth of its students. Our activities are designed to promote prayer, both personal and communal, service, and reflection. We hope to enable each student to develop a deep and lasting relationship with God and a commitment to the Benedictine vision and spirit modeled by St. Benedict.
Campus Ministry is directly responsible for the daily prayer, all school liturgies, and community prayer services of the school. Campus Ministry coordinates, among other things, the Freshman and Sophomore Retreats in the fall, activity period prayer meetings, seasonal environment displays throughout the liturgical year, the March for Life in January, Pass the Word Vocation Days in March, the Diocesan Youth Pilgrimage that opens Holy Week, the Junior and Senior Retreats in the spring, and the summer service trips. The Campus Ministry team works in collaboration with the St. E pastor, the Religious Studies department, and the administration to support the prayer life, academic opportunities, and service opportunities available to students as well as to make visible the presence of the Rule of St. Benedict in the community.
