My time at Bishop Chatard has provided an environment for my faith to grow surrounded by the support of my peers and faculty. BCHS has challenged me to own my faith and make it a personal connection with Christ, rather than an idea that I say I align with.
I have learned that as followers of Christ, we are called to not only witness the image and likeness of God in others, but act on this belief in a way that serves others. In my service-related experiences I have come to better understand how fulfilling it is to give back to my community.
