Catholic Campus Ministry in our country for over a century has been forming communities of faith which witness to the presence of the risen Christ. The National Conference of Catholic Bishops issued a Pastoral Letter regarding Campus Ministry on how to face the future by:
- Building up the faith community on campuses by bringing the message of Christ to the academic world
- Responding creatively to the promptings of the Spirit
- Promoting their well-being, the Church and society as a whole
Holy Spirit Catholic School-faculty, staff and parish family, is dedicated to providing excellence in education centered on the teachings of the Catholic faith. We will live this mission statement by forming the whole child.
