The program aims to complement the family in its primary role in religious education and to extend the religion lessons of the classroom to lived faith experiences. Campus Ministry sponsors events and activities that foster spiritual growth and development, particularly through the recollections and retreat programs for students and faculty. The Academy’s chaplain is available to students seeking counseling and presides over the sacramental life of the Academy. Campus Ministers plan liturgical services in accordance with the Church calendar, and work with class moderators to plan Communion Breakfasts for each class. The Lenten Mission Drive, Christmas Food & Toy Baskets, and Peer Ministry are all programs of the Campus Ministry Department.
