Campus Ministry Looks Back on a Busy, Faith-Filled Semester

This Fall Semester students enjoyed reflection on retreats and service, and celebrated monthly liturgies. In this Advent season, we are reminded to “Wait”, “Prepare” and “Hope” for the coming of our Savior, Jesus Christ. Click to read a letter from our Campus Minister...

Long before the school year began, senior Kairos leaders were busy preparing for Kairos K114.  Senior candidates enjoyed their final high school retreat amidst the peaceful surroundings of Mater Dolorosa Retreat House located in the Sierra Madre Mountains.  Freshman, sophomores and juniors quickly went off on their own retreats and service and enjoyed the gift of time away from the pressures of high school life and were able to take time to pray, reflect and enjoy the company of their fellow classmates. 

Sprinkled throughout the semester, we celebrated monthly liturgies, which included our Annual Grandparents Liturgy in November, where we took time to give thanks for our many blessings, especially the blessings of the grandparents in our lives.

December began with a school wide Advent Reconciliation Service with Monsignor Robert McNamara and Father Steve Davoren assisting us with our prayerful and meditative time together.  Louisville celebrated its final liturgy on the Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe.  The Mass was filled with joy and celebration as we honored the Blessed Virgin Mary by adorning the altar with beautiful flowers donated by students and faculty.  The Mass included beautiful folklorico dancing along with a wonderful Mariachi group, which provided our music.  Finally, our senior liturgical dancers completed the occasion by placing the Christmas Star on the tree, which the Class of 2019 lovingly decorated. 

In this Advent season, we are reminded to “Wait”, “Prepare” and “Hope” for the coming of our Savior, Jesus Christ.
We wish you a blessed Christmas and a joyful New Year!
