We are all members of a faith community. Students, Faculty, and Parents of Immaculate High School are called to live and practice their faith in Jesus Christ. Campus Ministry develops and nourishes the unique gifts of each member of our school community to bear witness to the presence of God among us. Participation in Campus Ministry fosters an ever-deepening personal relationship with Jesus Christ and prepares its members to embrace a leadership role in the Church.
Each and every day the programs and activities of Immaculate High School are integrated with our call to live our faith. Whether we are in a classroom, on an athletic field, or celebrating the Liturgy in our chapel, we are all called to pray, serve and love one another as God loves us.
The faith community of Immaculate High School is given the opportunity to meet God face-to-face through formal and informal prayer. Prayer is the foundation of a vital and personal relationship with God. It is the means by which we strengthen ourselves and one another to live and walk the journey of our faith in Christ. Formal religious life activities (i.e. Masses, Sacraments, Eucharistic Adoration, Retreats, School-wide prayer, etc.) and informal personal prayer and reflections are woven throughout the school day and are an integral part of all school activities.
Students, faculty and parents are called to serve through a commitment to practice Spiritual and Corporal Works of Mercy. Spiritual and Corporal Works of Mercy are works of charity done out of compassion or concern for those in distress and suffering. The Corporal Works are feeding the hungry, giving drink to the thirsty, clothing the naked, sheltering the homeless, visiting the sick and imprisoned, ransoming the captive and burying the dead. The Spiritual Works are instructing the ignorant, correcting sinners, advising the doubtful, showing patience to sinners and those in error, forgiving others, comforting the afflicted, and praying for the living and dead. By practicing these works we are witnessing and living our faith.
By learning and living the faith Campus Ministry prepares us to live a life of faith wherever we are and in whatever we do. As members of this faith community we will offer the world new signs of hope, work for justice and solidarity and fulfill the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
