“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.

“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. 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 for freshman and sophomore students. Through talks, activities, and prayer, retreatants learn to find God in their everyday lives.
Boys Retreat and Girls Retreat – The Boys and Girls Retreats are separate three-day retreats. These retreats focus on growing brotherhood and sisterhood. They are very activity-based. The goal is to build up confidence, overcome fears, and cultivate friendships!
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.
