Jesuit schools are infused with a five-century-old tradition and philosophy of education established by St. Ignatius of Loyola, founder of the Society of Jesus. Jesuit education helps develop each student in an environment that fosters the growth of the whole person. As a Jesuit college-preparatory school, Creighton Prep believes that all students need a sound education and that a faith-centered school has an important role to play in providing this education. Students are encouraged to reach the best within themselves - not only in the classroom, but also in the community and through service work. Staff within the Campus Ministry Office make these opportunities a reality.
Campus Ministry plans student liturgies in addition to morning prayer, Lenten and Advent reflections, and school-wide prayer services. Students have the opportunity to put their faith in action through a variety of service and social justice activities sponsored by the Campus Ministry Department. Campus Ministry is also responsible for planning all of the Prep Retreats, which provide our students the opportunity to examine their lives in a reflective and spiritual way and to develop a personal and transforming relationship with Jesus Christ.
Students who would like to become involved in Campus Ministry can join the Campus Ministry Advisory Board (CMAB). This is a group of students and adult moderators that meet weekly to plan and promote Campus Ministry activities. Students are at the center of Prep's campus ministry program and play an active role in planning liturgies, retreats, faith-sharing activities, and service activities for the Prep student body. CMAB consists of the following committees: Liturgy, Faith Sharing, Service, Liturgical Band, and Technology.
