Our school's patron saint, St. Bernard of Clairvaux, was a 12th century monk who lived a life of simplicity and intentionality. He worked to help others understand that through their actions and love for one another, they could truly serve God. He found great comfort in our Mother Mary, and as St. Bernard prayed, we also pray the Memorare at every convocation, class meeting, and sporting event. St. Bernard is one of the many examples of how we can live a holy life. From his example, we encourage our students to love one another and grow in their spirituality through Christian community service, masses, prayer, and retreats.
In the classroom, we invite discussion on issues of faith, allowing students to reflect upon and express their spirituality. We teach students the beliefs and practices of the Church, helping them understand what it means to be a disciple of Jesus in the world today.
Outside the classroom, Campus Ministry is supporting students in the growth of their faith with:
- Freshman Day Retreat (Fall and Spring)
- Sophomore Day Retreat (Fall)
- Junior Overnight Retreat (Spring)
- Senior Overnight “Kairos” Retreat (Winter)
- Monthly School Masses
- Athletic Team Chapel
- Annual Fall Food Drive
- Christmas Adopt - a - Family Participant
- MobileServe (community service app)
Christian Service Hour Program
The Campus Ministry program at St. Bernard High School, in partnership with the Religious Studies department, assists students in having a lived experience of Christian community, understanding and embracing Catholic teachings, and becoming inspired with the Holy Spirit and growing in faith and spirituality. The vision of SBHS Campus Ministry is to inspire full, active and conscious participation in the spiritual life of SBHS in each student.
