The Campus Ministry Department seeks to enhance the spiritual nature of the school, provides opportunity for the sacraments, and meaningful prayer experiences and services. Prayer is an integral part of our daily experience and every class begins with prayer.
Campus Ministry works collaboratively with the Theology Department to encourage students to seek to understand their faith, practice their beliefs, and most importantly, grow closer to Jesus Christ as they mature into young adults. Retreats are held for every class.
The Campus Ministry Club provides the opportunity for students to help plan Advent and Lent Prayer Services, participate in Liturgies through being Altar Servers and providing liturgical music.
Holy Family High School, as a Catholic community, offers a variety of liturgical experiences to build up our community as brother and sisters in Christ. Every month the school gathers in the gym for an All School Mass, and one class celebrates Mass together in the Chapel. During Church's Holy seasons we have prayer services, and we commemorate Feast days and special Church events throughout the year.
Daily Mass is celebrated in the HFHS Chapel during one of the lunch blocks, Monday through Friday, except on days when we have an All School Mass, Class Mass or retreat. Please click on the following for the Campus Ministry schedule.
The Campus Ministry Team plans annual class retreats. The purpose of a retreat is to remove students from every day distractions and offer time to reflect on God's love for them and deep desire for a relationship with them. The retreat experience seeks to build students in their relationship with Jesus Christ and inspire them to live as a witness to Christ's love to their neighbor. Retreats play an integral role in developing the Holy Family community and preparing our students to continue to live out their faith after graduation.
Seniors go away for a weekend retreat with their entire class to reflect on God's love for them and desire for them to be his disciples.
Juniors participate in a two and half-day Kairos Retreat.
Sophomores participate in a one-day, off-campus retreat in which they grow in charity through serving others.
Freshmen participate in a one-day, off-campus retreat in which they learn to seek out God in nature and their everyday activities.
Students who miss their class retreat must take part in a one-day makeup retreat in the spring.
