Fostering an interpersonal relationship with God and developing its expression within a faith community is at the heart of students’ knowing Christ Jesus’ love and becoming their authentic selves, made in God’s image and likeness. Mission and Ministry programs include personal and communal experiences for prayer and sacraments in formal worship and informal settings. Engaging in God’s message through Word, sacrament, contemplation and the arts, students reflect and take new steps on their faith journey. At every age, we are preparing and developing our students into ministry leaders, through active participation and training in various ministerial roles at Mass, retreats, and prayer.
“I invite you to come to the heart of Jesus with me, for it is there that I wish to dwell, and where if you wish it, we shall never be separated.” - Blessed Marie Rose Durocher, SNJM
