It is my privilege to serve as the director of campus ministry for Roncalli High School. It’s a beautiful place to be and the Holy Spirit is at work here! We hold fast to our purpose as a school, that we are “forming disciples of Jesus Christ through the intercession of St. John XXIII.” Theology classes offer the opportunity to form the mind through the study of the Church and Her teachings. Campus Ministry offers the opportunity to form the heart through Sacraments, prayer, retreat, and service.
My favorite part of the Catholic Tradition is the universality of the Church. Our beliefs are timeless. No matter who you are, where you are, or what time period you live in, the Church is a home for you. Campus Ministry seeks to make our faith relevant to today not by changing the beliefs, but instead by encouraging all to keep the relationship with Jesus Christ at the forefront of all we do, even as life, circumstances, and situations change. Throughout my own life, I’ve noticed that often the most joyful people have been the most faith-filled people. I pray that students see our school community as people who keep Christ at our center and credit Him as the source of our joy!
If there is anything I can do to help serve you, help you to grow in your faith, or questions I can answer, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me. Please pray for the Campus Ministry team as we continue in this important and fulfilling ministry!
