The Mission

“Preach the Gospel and if necessary use words.”
– St. Francis of Assisi

The Campus Ministry department at Bishop Manogue Catholic High School endeavors to bring the Gospel message of Jesus Christ to students, faculty, staff, parents, and alumni of Bishop Manogue. We utilize retreats, education, service, liturgy, prayer, community, fellowship, and worship as our primary tools in achieving this goal. Campus Ministry is about helping our community connect with God on a deeper level and growing in our Catholic faith.

The Opportunities

“Open your hearts to the love God instills . . . God loves you tenderly. What He gives you is not to be kept under lock and key, but to be shared.”- Mother Teresa

Kairos Retreat – Kairos is a three-day retreat for juniors and seniors held at Zephyr Cove, Lake Tahoe. Kairos strives to help students deepen their faith and religious understanding. Retreatants experience talks, activities, prayer, and liturgy. Kairos is offered at many respected Catholic high schools throughout the country.

Quest Retreat – Quest is a two-day retreat at Camp Galilee in Glenbrook, Nev., for freshman and sophomore students. Through talks, activities, and prayer, retreatants learn to find God in their everyday lives.

Freshmen Retreat – The Freshmen Retreat is a mandatory day retreat for freshmen that occurs during the first quarter of freshmen year. This retreat focuses on introducing students to Bishop Manogue and the Campus Ministry program, and it gives them an opportunity to meet their classmates in a relaxed setting.

Liturgy – Campus Ministry is responsible for offering sacramental experiences for the school. This includes the celebration of the Eucharist, Reconciliation, and Anointing of the Sick. Our chapel is also open for memorial services and weddings of Bishop Manogue Alumni.

Service – The Campus Ministry department encourages a lifelong commitment to service in the model of Jesus Christ. To this end we oversee the Christian Service Program as well as service trips and local service experiences.

Prayer — In order to maintain and foster a spirit of faith the Campus Ministry department begins and ends every school day with school-wide prayer. We also have a prayer box for special intentions in Christ the Teacher Chapel. There are differing prayer opportunities that correspond to the liturgical season and events happening in and around the school. Moreover, through a connection to the Parents Association there is a weekly rosary group that meets to hold up special intentions and the Bishop Manogue community through the praying of the rosary. The rosary group meets on Tuesday mornings at 9 am in the chapel.
