The Campus Ministry Office is established to promote Fairfield Prep's mission and to broaden the opportunities for Christian life experiences of the Prep community. Its purpose is to both provide and coordinate spiritual, service and leadership programs within the context of communal responsibility and the experiences of religious faith. The Campus Ministry Office takes an active role in promoting themes of peace and justice for all. It puts forth great effort in promoting Jesuit ideals and values as well as Ignatian Spirituality where the practice of reflection is encouraged.Spiritual and religious programs such as Kairos, Urban Plunge, and Immersion Projects, Sophomore Retreat, March for Life, ND Vision, Student Leadership Retreat, Mite Box, and the Sacraments (including school liturgies, reconciliation services, etc.) are components of Campus Ministry. Regardless of their religious affiliation, students are invited to volunteer their services to accomplish these purposes and/or participate in leadership and extended retreat programs sponsored by the Campus Ministry Office.
The Campus Ministry Student Leadership team meets every Monday after school in St. Joseph Chapel (X107). Programs are available throughout the school year, during the summer as well as February and April break.
