St. Charles Campus Ministry
Director of Campus: Ministry Michael Warner

We are foremost a ministry of Jesus Christ. He is the foundation of our school, and we incorporate His teachings into all aspects of school life. This foundation guides our students in their time at Saint Charles and inspires them as adults to live and model lives of virtue, prayer, service, justice and mercy. Instilling this faith accurately, comprehensively and joyfully is the principal responsibility and greatest privilege of our school community. All that we do flows from our desire to grow closer with God and do God’s will. Whether that be in our all school liturgies or morning prayer club, students are encouraged along in their own faith journey with many opportunities for prayer and reflection. One of the major avenues for this spiritual grown is through required grade level retreats, each designed to be engaging and prayerful. Students also undertake required Christian Service in their freshman (16hrs), sophomore (16 hrs) and junior (24 hrs at single project) years and are encouraged to take up leadership positions during their senior year.

In all our undertakings we are inspired by the Charisms or spiritual gifts of our patron St. Charles of Borromeo who practiced humility, mercy and solidarity in all he did.

Humility: We recognize the truth of our status before God and others, giving God glory in all things. We believe that those who exalt themselves will be humbled and those who humble themselves will be exalted. Therefore, our community strives to emulate our patron who gave selflessly and without regard to status or prestige.

Mercy: Trusting in God’s mercy toward us, we practice the same compassion toward the marginalized. We hold central to our mission carrying out the Corporal Works of Mercy through acts of service, feeding the hungry and clothing the naked.

Solidarity: We establish a unity grounded in brotherhood, committing ourselves to building up the common good within and beyond our community. We privilege the principles of Catholic Social Teaching which call us to uphold the dignity of the person and the common good of society.
