Campus ministryEdit

SLU-LJHS Campus Ministry

               The core identity of Saint Louis University lies on the fact that it is a CICM Catholic Institution bearing the mission entrusted by Jesus, that is to proclaim and witness to the Reign of God through love and service to others. How the CICM schools respond to this mission varies but what is unique among them is the existence of the Office of the Vice President for Mission and Identity. “It is responsible for safeguarding and ensuring CICM educational institutions to faithfully carry out its missionary identity and tasks” (CICM Christian Formation Manual). Thus, the presence of the Campus Ministry becomes an essential and officially recognized component of the missionary tasks not only of the CICM but of the whole Church.

CICM Campus Ministry focuses on Christian formation. It is concerned with how the whole school community, will have a “living encounter with Jesus on campus” through the different ministries of the Church: Ministry of the Word, including evangelization, catechesis, guidance and education; the Ministry of worship; and the ministry of healing (Fourth Synod of Manila, p.92). The goal of Christian formation is achieved through the combined efforts of the school administrators, personnel, students and all other stakeholders under the guidance of the office of the Vice President for Mission and Identity (VPMI). Thus, a whole year-round of Christian presence is felt through various activities which are planned and implemented, hoping that the visions and the values of Christian living are attained and lived out.

Here is a list of the yearly activities of the Campus Ministry:

1.      Eucharistic Celebrations

  • Weekly Masses
  • Mass for Special Occasions: Mass of the Holy Spirit, Foundation Day, Advent, Sacrament of Confirmation, Family Day, Ash Wednesday, Intramurals, Year End, Recognition & Completion Day and others
