FAITH AND SERVICE


Campus Ministry

Dear young people, Jesus gives us life, life in abundance. If we are close to him we will have joy in our hearts and a smile on our face.
– Pope Francis

Campus Ministry at Helias Catholic High School strives to support the faith formation of the students, staff and school community by providing opportunities which lead to a deeper awareness of the message of God’s love and opportunities for worship, supporting the formation of a community of faith, and the promotion of service as a way of life.

In addition to daily Mass we have All School Masses at various times throughout the year.  These are held in the Helias Old Gym at 10:20 AM.  All are invited to join us for these celebrations.  All school liturgies for 2016-2017 are:

Days of Adoration (Wednesday, Nov. 2 and Wednesday, April 12) and an All School Stations of the Cross (Friday, April 7) prayer experience are also scheduled during the year. 


Class Retreats provide opportunities for students to step away from their regular class schedule and activities and to reflect upon their life from a faith perspective.  These opportunities also support the formation of class unity.   Students are expected to participate in the retreat scheduled for their class.
