Faith Formation

Students are encouraged to become involved in the activities of the Campus Ministry program. Throughout the year, we offer the following opportunities for student faith formation.  For our 2016-2017 calendar of events click HERE.   

 

Catholic Athletes for Christ

Catholic Athletes for Christ is a club available to any athlete at Bishop Kenny. The club meets once a month and focuses on a specific scripture or sport story relevant to their own faith formation. CAC meets to attend mass together, and offers service opportunities specific to sports and faith. The club has open enrollment throughout the academic year.  For more information click HERE.  

Mission Trips

Bishop Kenny hosts an annual mission trip for juniors and seniors. The 2017 trip will be headed to New Orleans with Catholic Mission trips. The focus of a mission trip is to experience the poor and marginalized, to walk in solidarity with people from cultures different than our own, and to experience the person of Christ through works of service. These trips are capped at the first 12 students to sign up. The next trip will be scheduled for 2018 and information will be provided by the end of the 2016-17 school year.  For more information click HERE.  

The March for Life

"The March for Life is a peaceful , prayerful, protest of the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision that legalized abortion in the United States of America. Ever since that day, nearly 60,000,000 infants have been killed by abortion. Thousands of citizens, especially youth, will march to the capital building while praying, chanting, and meeting other pro-life individuals.

 All are encouraged to be mindful that the journey to Washington is first and foremost a ‘Pilgrimage’ on behalf of the sanctity of human life.

 A pilgrimage is a form of prayer.  It is NOT “spiritual tourism” where we visit a lot of Holy Places and have Holy Experiences.  It is rather Journey of Faith which mirrors our lifelong journey of faith back to the Father’s House.  The ultimate goal of a pilgrimage is to deepen our faith, which must remain the focus- not only of each individual but also of the whole group".

Spiritual Conferences

Each quarter every grade has the opportunity to attend a spiritual conference. The spiritual conferences consist of a speaker or group of speakers who are active in the Catholic Church.  They share their experience and wisdom with the students in a reflective environment. Examples of past speakers have been: Members of the Cenacola community, Missionaries of the Poor, Servant Sister of the Home of the Mother, campus ministers from college campuses, speakers on the theology of the body, seminarians, and many others. This is a rich experience for students to step outside the classroom and learn how to apply the Catholic faith to their everyday life.

Kairos (God’s Time)
Kairos is a nationwide Catholic retreat for high school students. The focus of the weekend long retreat is to allow students to have a personal experience of God  through getting to know their peers better. The retreat is set at a beautiful location, includes delicious food, reflection, adoration, confession, mass, and is led by junior and senior students.  Each year Bishop Kenny has a fall and spring retreat open to 45 juniors and seniors.
 

School Wide Mass

Once a month Bishop Kenny students and faculty have the opportunity to attend mass together. These beautiful masses feature the voices of our Bishop Kenny chorus. School wide masses rely on the service of the Eucharistic ministers, and student readers/altar servers. Although there are over 1200 students in the gym during these services, they are always reverent and respectful.
