Campus ministry events most often take place within the school day with lunch and club programs such as the Ethics Team, F.A.M.I.L.Y. Outreach, and C.P.C. (Church Pop Culture).
Diocesan events aimed at our youth play an integral part of campus ministry in order that we may gather, converse and celebrate with the wider church. You can learn more about these programs at the links below.
New this year is the addition of an Ethics Team which will meet as a club in order to discuss and research actual ethical cases that are current in society. Our team of students will prepare a number of cases defending each side of an ethical issue while they hone the skills of research, public speaking, persuasive writing, critical thinking and civil discourse. We will enter our first Ethics Bowl on December 8, 2018, at Stevens Institute of Technology.
F.A.M.I.L.Y. (Forget About Me, I Love You) is a service group devoted to living out the corporal works of mercy as Jesus taught in Matthew 25:31-45. We seek opportunities to feed the hungry, clothe the naked, and visit the sick or the imprisoned, while also attending to our spiritual life which gives us the graces to go forth in this mission of mercy.
The Liturgy Team is composed of students interested in getting more involved with the Liturgy in all its stages – planning and serving. Select Seniors are invited to serve as Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion during school liturgies, and students are invited to serve as lectors, sacristans and altar servers. The Liturgy team will help put together the programs, and will be the team that regularly serves weekly, and monthly liturgies.
