Campus Ministry

Empowering and supporting spiritual growth

Our Roman Catholic faith tradition teaches us that a complete education includes the development of every student as a whole person and in becoming a “person for others.” Therefore, the Campus Ministry Program ensures that these foundational Catholic values are woven throughout school life. All liturgies, Masses, retreats, religious rituals and community service opportunities are managed by Campus Ministry.

Ministry principles

At Eastside Catholic, we believe that every person is a manifestation of the living God. Campus Ministry programs are designed to:

  • Create an environment for open and honest discovery, exploration and development of a school community rooted in faith, hope and the love of Christ
  • Educate and empower members of the school community in a faith that nurtures holiness, character, virtue and active engagement in the mission of the church
  • Engage students in asking thoughtful and probing questions about the religious, ethical and moral challenges we face in this academic setting and the broader community
  • Support the growth and maturity of the whole person and cultivate active engagement, service and compassion in the world

All are welcome here

Roman Catholic faith and traditions are central to the school experience at EC, and celebrated in a way that welcomes and affirms other religious traditions. All members of the EC community are taught to honor and respect the diverse religious traditions and expressions of fellow members. Whenever we gather to pray, reflect or serve at Eastside Catholic, we do so as one school community, united as beloved children of God.
