Campus Ministry

Campus Ministry

Campus Ministry supports the mission of Marian by helping all to grow in faith, service, compassion and community in the Servite tradition. Campus Ministry seeks to provide religious activities that will enable the Marian community to grow in faith, a spirit of prayer, and in an atmosphere of warmth, dialogue and trust. 

Through student leadership, Marian's Campus Ministry department coordinates liturgies, retreats, prayer experiences, service projects and opportunities for sacraments.  The students and moderators who make up Marian’s Campus Ministry team are dedicated to enriching the spiritual lives and social awareness of the entire Marian community.

Students on retreat

Retreats

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.

Prayer and Liturgy

Campus Ministry is responsible for planning all-school Masses and prayer services. Marian students are trained as Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion (EMHCs), lectors and altar servers to assist at all liturgies.

Members of the worship choir provide the music for all-school Masses under the direction of Anna Kolterman. All students are welcome to participate in Worship Choir.

Every school day starts with daily prayer which is also facilitated by students. 

Service

Service to others is a natural extension of being a Marian student. Though Marian does not require a specific number of service hours, all students are involved in service in some way, either through the sites and opportunities that Marian facilitates or with the opportunities that they pursue on their own. A service reflection paper, however, is required of all students each year on the variety of service completed during the previous 12 months.

Service Sites: Marian partners with selected community nonprofits each school year and encourages its students to take advantage of these opportunities to serve the Omaha community. If you have any questions please contact Sara Greisch at 402.571.2618 x6236 or sgreisch@omahamarian.org.

service project for Christmas Child

Faith in Action Team (FIAT)

Students work to further their faith by helping others through activities. These activities include Mass planning, awareness campaigns and large-group projects, such as the Operation Christmas Child toy drive and a projected feminine hygiene product drive in the spring. 

Selected members of FIAT work on the core team, which serves as the overall student leaders for Campus Ministry. 

These student leaders find new ways to implement faith and service into daily life, as well as implement the Campus Ministry theme for each year.
