JSerra Campus Ministry focuses on fostering student commitment to the values of the Gospel.
Campus Ministry provides an "ear" for students who need someone with whom to talk. We believe that we belong to each other, so students are always welcome to make an appointment or walk in and spend time with one of our Campus Ministers.
Many Campus Ministry programs are directed and administered by students. Such responsibility affords students valuable training and an opportunity to practice leadership, which we hope they will take with them to their future parishes and apostolates. We believe that we belong to each other, and students in leadership roles offers ways for our students to support one another and grow within themselves. Leadership opportunities consist of Retreat Leaders, Music Ministry, Altar Serving, and many more.
Retreats allow students to focus and deepen their interior lives through an encounter with the living God. All students have the opportunity to participate in several off-campus retreats offered throughout their experience at JSerra Catholic High School.
Attending my junior year retreat with Campus Ministry changed my previously negative attitude toward school. I now feel like I'm closer to God with the guidance and support of the Campus Ministers.
"Campus Ministry events have helped me make new friends, get away from the daily stresses of life, and spend time in reflection and prayer. I attend as often as I can."
