Welcome to Campus Ministry and Student Life at Guerin Catholic!

We work to form Guerin Catholic students spiritually, socially, as leaders of the future, and disciples of Christ. Through clubs and club leadership, student government, Mass, Adoration, reception of the Sacraments, social and service opportunities, senior capstone projects, mission trips, pilgrimages, retreats, and retreat leadership, we give students the opportunity to explore their God-given talents, passions, and gifts, and to learn how to offer them for the greater glory of God. We are proud to serve and develop our students every day!

Every student will have the opportunity to attend one retreat per year, and we open up opportunities for students to serve as retreat leaders their senior year. This year, approximately 60% of our seniors are in spiritual leadership formation and will be charged with helping lead their peers with us, and 20-25% will be leading capstone projects in service of the Church, GC, and the greater community.

At the end of the day, while leadership opportunities look great on resumes and college applications, what we’re really looking to do is to walk with others in their own discipleship journeys, and to help them discover where the Lord is leading them to make their mark on the world. St. Catherine of Siena once said: “Be who God meant you to be and you will set the world on fire.” It is a profound honor to serve the Guerin Catholic Community and to help our students discover the Lord’s plan for their lives.

St. Theodore Guerin, Pray for us!
