Campus Ministry 

Campus Ministry is at the very heart of who we are as a Salesian community.

Our Christian calling challenges us daily to love as we have been loved by God. Our Salesian calling challenges us still further to become the image of Jesus in the ordinary daily moments of our existence. Salesian High School is unique in its efforts to emphasize that we are all involved in ministry, in the mission to make our campus an experience of God’s abiding love and compassion for all.

 

Campus Ministry Team (CMT)

The Campus Ministry Team (CMT) is an essential part of the Salesian community as this team continues to live the Salesian charism.

CMT members show, through their faith based emphasis on service, their commitment and collaboration, to love the Salesian charism.These students are the heart of many of the activities of the whole school community. They are the backbone of maintaining the spirit of love and service so typical of being Salesian.

Students join the Campus Ministry Team through a process of application and interview. They are of service to the whole school community through their leadership during worship, as well as taking leadership of different fund raising drives. Specific annual outreach to the local community is the responsibility of the Campus Ministry Team members through two major events: Projects Santa and the Spring Carnival. They pledg themselves to work together with SLAM members and support all other student activities.

Two members of CMT are appointed to serve on the Council of the Educating Pastoral Community (CEPC).

Daily Morning Prayer

Every morning school begins with a morning prayer by our Director Fr. Mel Trinidad. Students are led in a morning reflection and prayer which sets the tone for the rest of the day.

Triduum 

At the beginning of the school year, Salesian students recognize the Triduum, three days of spiritual preparation which introduces the unique theme for the year. Spiritual activities include liturgies, guest lectures and student-team activities, all of which help illustrate and deepen our understanding of that theme.

Feast Day of Don Bosco

On our feast day of St. John Bosco, or Don Bosco Day (January 31st) as we refer to it,  is a day of worship, community sharing and celebration. For 50 years, Salesian High School students have come together to reflect and celebrate Don Bosco Day. Students, Faculty and Staff all participate in liturgy, and participate in fun games and activities.

Feast Day of Mary Help of Christians

In May, the Salesian community gathers for liturgy and reflection to honor the Feast Day of Mary Help of Christians
