Spirituality

Spirituality Ministry

Spirituality ministry invites us to deepen a relationship with God through spiritual and formative activities.  As a Catholic institution, we offer opportunities to attend Mass twice a week, schedule Reconciliation and empower students to celebrate their faith through involvement and leadership.  We also offer a welcoming environment for all faith traditions and make efforts to celebrate and honor all beliefs that promote the greater good.  Spirituality ministry leaders plan weekly food and fellowship nights, coordinate the student-led Mass on Sunday’s, facilitate small faith communities, and head the planning of retreats.
