Youth Ministry Mission
To ensure that our schools are guided and driven by a clearly communicated mission that embraces a Catholic Identity centered on the Eucharist, rooted in Gospel values and committed to faith formation, academic excellence and service.
Youth Ministry Goals
- To provide a rigorous program of religious studies and catechesis in the Catholic faith that is part of an academic curriculum that integrates faith, culture and life.
- To provide opportunities outside the classroom for student faith formation, participation in liturgical and communal prayer and service activities.
The Saunders Catholic Schools seeks to provide opportunities for adult faith formation, service and action for our alumni, parents, friends and community members, in support of social justice.
Adult Ministry Goals
- To provide retreats and other spiritual experiences for alumni, parents, faculty and staff on a regular basis.
- To assist parents/guardians and families in their role as the primary educators of their children in the faith.
- To collaborate with other institutions (e.g., Catholic Charities, Catholic higher education, parish-sponsored programs) to offer opportunities to live out our faith through religious formation programs and service opportunities.
