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 "One God and Father of all".
“…one Lord, one faith, one baptism; one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all” (Ephesians 4:5-6).
In the letter to the Ephesians, St. Paul writes about oneness in the Christian community. By that time the Church was comprised of people from a variety of former faith and non-faith backgrounds, from many different countries, from different social spheres, and with different languages. For the Church to survive and continue to grow it needed to be one. Paul, writing from prison, asks the believers to be unified in their common love of God. He goes on to recognize the variety of gifts the people possess in the Spirit which are at service to the Church, their different relationships, ways, and even beliefs. However, most important is what is common among them. In describing God Paul uses the Greek word for Father, emphasizing the familial love that is primary to our relationship with God. We are the adopted children of a God who loves us. The task of the believer is to surrender to this love in and through love. Bishop Alemany is a gifted community of many different believers. May 2018-19 be a celebration of all that we hold in common, especially our love for our Father.
