Marian’s 2011-2012 Ministry Council Theme: "Blessed With...."
It is Marian's belief that human skills and knowledge should be integrated with religious truth, values of teachers, administrators and students in a Ca tholic school. The Campus Ministry Program seeks to provide and coordinate religious activities that will enable the Marian community to grow as a faith community in a spirit of prayer and in an atmosphere of warmth, dialogue and trust.
The Campus Ministry Program consists of student leaders from all groups involved in planning retreats, prayer experiences, liturgies and opportunities for sacraments and service projects. The students and moderators who make up Marian’s Campus Ministry program are dedicated, through faith and action, to enriching the spiritual lives and social awareness of the entire Marian community. Congratulations to the following students who were accepted into Campus Ministry leadership positions for the 2012-2013 school year.
Retreats are also central to spiritual reflection and growth. In this spirit, Marian students are required to attend a retreat each year. Marian retreats create an environment where students have an opportunity to reflect, both personally and communally, on their relationship with God and with others, to witness and share faith, and to learn about and experience prayer. Retreats are a growing opportunity for students, where they can learn more about themselves and their classmates. Marian retreats challenge students to integrate and affirm a spirituality of compassionate leadership, a central principle of Marian High School and the Servants of Mary. Freshmen and seniors have overnight retreats, and sophomores and juniors have a variety of day retreats from which to choose.
Retreat Policy: Retreats are central to spiritual reflection and growth. In this spirit, Marian students are required to attend a retreat each year.
"Our hope is that all students use this opportunity to explore their relationship with God and determine how this relationship applies to daily life."
Service to others is a natural extension of being a Marian student. Though Marian does not require specific number of service hours, most students are involved in service in some way, either with the many sites and opportunities that Marian facilitates or with the ones that they find on their own. A service reflection paper, however, is required of all students each year on the variety of service completed during the previous twelve months.
Below is a list of all the service sites for Marian students. Marian encourages its students to take advantage of these opportunities to serve the Omaha community. If you have any questions please contact Kory Delkamiller at (402) 571-2618 x 203.
