Catholic Mission

Campus Ministry

Our goal and mission is that through prayer, programs, and outreach we can help to build the Kingdom of God here at Notre Dame High School.
The Campus Ministry Program at Notre Dame high School is made up of a team including our Chaplain, Father Jason Parzynski, Campus Ministers Tracey Reed and Kathy Maley, campus ministry students, faculty, staff and administration who are responsible for providing spiritual programs for the entire Notre Dame community. Each year, underclassmen experience a day of reflection, prayer and discussion with their fellow classmates. Seniors have the option to take part in Kairos, a four day retreat, which leads them through an intense self-reflection of their lives, their relationships and choices. Campus ministry clubs promote prayer, faith development, and social justice (FaithJustice retreats and Social Justice Club). Morning prayer, Eucharistic adoration, monthly liturgy and monthly confession are available to students. Peer support groups for students experiencing loss and stress are available through our Spectrum program.
