The primary role of the Campus Minister is to enable students to synthesize their faith with academics and integrate faith in their daily lives. The school provides worship and retreat opportunities for the students. Community service opportunities are posted for students who need them.
We offer a variety of opportunities for our students in the areas of Christian Service and Worship including:
Fr. Leo will be at ND-BG for Chaplain's Corner typically once a week. Students will need a pass from their teacher to be excused to the Chapel.
The school’s chapel is a sacred place for prayer. Students visiting the chapel either alone or as part of a class are to demonstrate respect for Jesus present in the Blessed Sacrament reserved in the chapel.
Forms for the documentation of service hours are available from the Campus Minister or the Main Office. April 30 is the last day to file service forms to be considered for accolades at the end of the school year.
The Celebration of the Holy Eucharist is the heart and summit of the Church’s life for it is the whole Christian Community united with Christ, its Head. By its very nature the Mass calls for a full, conscious and active participation of the faithful.
The entire school community will gather several times each year to celebrate Mass together. Reverence is always the fitting response to the Lord. At Mass we gather before the Lord who reveals himself to us under the appearance of bread and wine. The reverence and respect for Christ present in the Most Blessed Sacrament must be peerless.
Reverence and devotion, faith and unity are celebrated in a variety of ways. Disrespect, irreverence and impiety at Mass are intolerable. Profane, rude or disrespectful conduct during the celebration of Mass or any other form of common worship will warrant one’s removal from that service. Such conduct will be considered a major offense and may be met with consequences as severe as suspension or expulsion.
Prayer services are also held in the school chapel or in the gym. All liturgies and prayer services are noted on the school calendar.
Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament takes place in the chapel on the first Friday of each month during the school year from 8:30 AM to 2:00 PM.
Parents are always welcome at school liturgies, prayer services and during Exposition of the Eucharist.
