Philosophy

"The desire for God is written in the human heart, because man is created by God and for God, and God never ceases to draw man to Himself. Only in God will he find the truth and happiness he never stops searching for."
- Catechism of the Catholic Church (Part 1, Section 1, Chapter 1, Article 27)

Recognizing this desire in the human heart which is central to our Christian calling, the Campus Ministry program of Our Lady of Mercy Catholic High School seeks to support and nurture students in their spiritual lives.

St. Augustine said, “Our hearts are restless until they rest in Thee, O Lord.” Responding to these words, Campus Ministry strives to make Christ and His Church real to students providing a ministry that encourages the Mercy family to know, love, and serve the Lord. Our Lady of Mercy invites students to profess, celebrate, and live their faith by means of the Sacraments, prayer, service and outreach, study, and Christian action.
