The Office of Campus Ministry serves to further the Mission of St. Francis High School. It works to develop the whole person of every member of the school community, by safeguarding our Catholic and Franciscan identity.
Through programs that uphold and encourage our core values of faith, humility, compassion, and integrity, Campus Ministry seeks to provide the entire school community opportunities for the deepening of faith and the development of a spiritual life.
Striving to animate the spiritual life of the St. Francis High School community, the Office of Campus Ministry develops and maintains a ministerial program that focuses on four major areas; namely, liturgical and sacramental life, retreats, service-learning, and student groups.
