Religion is not confined to the classroom. Our Campus Ministry Department assures a program that 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 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 West Virginia, Philadelphia, Washington D.C., Arizona-Mexico Border, and Puerto Rico.
The Academy has two places set apart for personal prayer, prayer groups, and the celebration of small group liturgies.
The Blessed Sacrament Chapel
Located on the main floor near the main entrance, this chapel offers students a welcome retreat at any time in the school day. There is a “Book of Intentions” in the Blessed Sacrament Chapel where members of the school community can write their requests for prayer.
Located in Kelleher Hall, the chapel is home to the Blessed Sacrament. This sacred space is used for retreats, religious studies class prayer experiences, small group liturgies, and personal prayer.
Faith & Service
Community service as a requirement for graduation is rooted in the gospel call of love and service. It is also deeply embedded in the goals and philosophy of the Academy of the Holy Angels.
Holy Angels commits itself to an environment of Christian community based on an active faith in God. Campus Ministry assures a program that values reflection, personal and liturgical prayer, and Christian action in the form of service to others.
Holy Angels commits itself to an awareness of the needs of the poor and a responsibility to effect change on their behalf. A well-integrated community service program assures that each student shares actively in service to the wider community, especially to those with the greatest need.
The purpose of community service is to reinforce the belief that service is integral to a gospel lifestyle and provide opportunities for students to share their gifts with others.
Our liturgical celebrations are an essential way that we at AHA express our identity as a faith community and deepen our unity with God, each other, and all of God’s creation.
The Campus Ministry Department is always looking for students to share their time and talents through our liturgies and prayer services. Students are encouraged to stop by the Campus Ministry Office our access or online volunteer form on BlackbaudK12.
