The Sr. Elizabeth Anne Sheehy Campus Ministry Center at Bishop Alemany High School
The Campus Ministry Center is a resource for the development of the identity of Bishop Alemany High School as a Catholic school. Here the students and staff are welcome to become involved in the development of their own faith and in the development of our faith community. Through the meeting of open hearts and open minds, together we are better able to discover the joys of living in and through Christ.
The staff of the Campus Ministry Center wishes to extend our best wishes to all of you as we invite you to be a part of the events and spirit of the new school year. The Campus Ministry theme for the upcoming school year is "Be God's Mercy". These words are related to the theme of the "Jubilee Year of Mercy" called by Pope Francis. The Jubilee year is to run from December 8, 2015 until the feast of Christ the King, 2016. Pope Francis hopes that this year will inspire us to be a merciful Church that reaches out to the poor and the hurting. We are to seek and give forgiveness. We are to set those held captive free. May the Lord bless us, that we might be merciful as the Father is merciful and may we all enjoy a year of favor.
