The role of our Campus Minister, with the assistance of the administration, faculty, and Mission Effectiveness Committee of the Mater Dei School Board, is to foster personal and spiritual growth and to draw young people to responsible participation in the life, mission, and work of the faith community.
The first concern of Campus Ministry, is the individual student. One-on-one interaction with students, augmented by the services of our on-site counselor, provides students with assistance when needed. In addition, our Campus Minister serves as the freshman class advisor and coordinates our school-wide Safe Homes Network.
Moreover, since Church is a community of individuals with different gifts, Campus Ministry programs challenge students to develop their unique talents, especially within the sacramental and liturgical life of the Church.
Finally, our Campus Minister promotes the faith-development of our students through daily morning prayer in our Chapel, weekly Masses for our Theology classes, all-school Masses throughout the year, annual retreats for all students, and service, including the three-week Senior Service Project.
Know that Campus Ministry, referred to as “the students’ home away from home,” will serve as one of your many partners in the growth of your child!
