Religion is not confined to just the classroom. The Campus Ministry Department assures a program which values reflection, personal and liturgical prayer, and Christian action in the form of service to others.
- Students are challenged to integrate Catholic Social Teachings and moral values into action in their daily lives.
- A well-integrated community service program affords students with ample opportunities to serve the wider community, with a particular emphasis on caring for the poor and vulnerable.
- As an expression of this commitment, the entire Holy Angels’ community spends one day each spring giving service at more than a dozen locations including food banks, homes for at-risk mothers, day care centers, nursing homes and environmental centers.
- Students also respond to the needs of those beyond their local communities by participating in service trips to such places as Honduras, Beijing, and New Orleans.
"In unity is our strength, therefore we must hold to this anchor above all." These words of Blessed Theresa of Jesus Gerhardinger, foundress of the School Sisters of Notre Dame, are the basis for this year's theme.
These words remind us that as an SSND Sponsored Institution we are called to work for unity and meet the needs of our time. The following statement taken from the Directional Statement of the 23rd General Chapter of the School Sisters of Notre Dame underline the very core beliefs of SSND -- "We the School Sisters of Notre Dame, are profoundly affected and challenged by the many divisions in our world and church today and by the social, economic and ecological crises of our times. As an international congregation of apostolic women religious, we are called and sent to address these divisions with audacity and hope."
At the Academy of the Holy Angels we endeavor to be a community of one heart and one mind, while recognizing that unity can be expressed in and enriched by diversity.
"Unity alone makes us strong within and without; unity makes us indestructible. Unity lightens the hardships of our vocations; unity makes us invincible."
Blessed Theresa of Jesus #3006.
