About Our Program
Revolving Around Our Faith
Our Catholic faith is the beating heart of our school– it is the center around which all of our activities, curriculum, and care for students is rooted. We take seriously the commitment to our four pillars of faith, learning, leadership, and service and seek to cultivate those charisms in our students. We plant the seeds of faith in our students, knowing that they will grow and flourish in time.
The Campus Ministry Office is guided by the wisdom and tradition of our universal Church and our prime example of the Christian life, Jesus Christ. Everything we do flows from the tradition of our Catholic faith. We provide robust, intentional, and diverse opportunities for students to encounter Christ.
Our programming builds up the “spiritual toolbox” of our students, giving them the building blocks for an integrated, flourishing spiritual life.
- We seek to inspire students to go deeper in faith by giving them many different experiences of retreats, Christian service, liturgies and prayer.
- We accompany students and staff in the challenges and joys of their daily lives, helping them to identify God at work in themselves and those around them.
- We challenge students to be open to the vocation God is calling them towards.
- We invite students to live the words of the prophet Isaiah: “Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? Who will go for us?” “Here I am,” I said; “send me!” (Isaiah 6:8).
It is our hope and prayer that every student will leave Bishop Chatard knowing that they are beloved by God, devoted to growing in faith, and committed to living their lives in service to others. Every student has a place in the spiritual life of our school, and all are encouraged to take on leadership roles within Campus Ministry. We look forward to walking with all of our students on their journeys of faith.
