For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. 12 Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. 13 You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.
Chaplaincy is a part of a student's high school journey that provides opportunities for spiritual growth. Throughout high school, students are challenged in academically, emotionally and physically. Through Chaplaincy, they can strive to grow deeper the love and service of God. The big question for a graduate as they walk across the stage to receive their diploma is, "Who have I become?" – Not just, what have I learned? Faith development in high school is a big part of that question.
Chaplaincy uses our Catholic social teachings, connections to Scripture and life, prayer and Outreach to create vibrant and inclusive opportunities for students to gain skills and deepen their own connections to faith and life. Life can get complicated in high school. Through Chaplaincy activities, students are reminded that we are all created equally in the image of God and that we are called to serve others in God's name.
Through the retreat program, School Masses, countless social justice activities of outreach, and Mission trip experiences, students can deepen a sense of their own faith and make connections of faith and life. They can discover what the prophet Jeremiah meant when about the plans of God for us to be prospered.
The Chaplain's door is always open and all are welcome!
