 /  Faith & Service

Through a ministry that preaches inclusion and openness, STM strives to create a welcoming, supportive environment that preaches cura personalis: “care for the entire person.” Providing an immersive “Ministry of Presence” that touches all aspects of our students’ lives, STM nurtures each area of young people’s development – intellectual, spiritual, and personal.

 

Ministry of Presence

Today’s teenagers live busy lives full of adventure, excitement, and sometimes, conflict. With all that is going on in their lives, students often need guidance to understand God’s role in their lives. Rather than preaching abstract concepts, STM’s faith formation program focuses on the issues that directly affect our students and their families, emphasizing relatability while providing students with the opportunity to grow into their own spirituality. To provide that guidance, STM meets students wherever they are, creating a campus ministry that is eternally present and available for students, whether they need advice, consoling, or simply a friendly conversation. As a Ministry of Presence, STM aims to:

  1. Provide students with authentic conversation and spiritual dialogue that is free of judgment and preconceptions;
  2. Engage students wholeheartedly, stimulating both their mind and soul; and
  3. Connect people of different backgrounds, helping them gain valuable perspective and learn from each other’s experiences.

saint-thomas-more-00St. Thomas More lived in fifteenth century England.  A father, husband, and lawyer, St. Thomas More was known for his reasoned and ethical approach to life.  He gained the attention of King Henry VIII and was appointed the Chancellor of England.  As the crisis between England and the Catholic Church worsened, St. Thomas More was forced to choose between serving his God or serving his King.  He choose the former.  Campus Ministry is inspired by the life of St. Thomas More to create disciples for life.  No matter where our students are sent in the public sphere, they can be beacons of integrity.

 

St. Thomas More was himself inspired by the life of St. Francis and St. Clare of Assisi.  These saints lived in Italy during the 1200s, growing up in wealthy households destined for an “easy” life.  Francis received a stirring call from God to rebuild the Church, spurring a revolution that would change the face of Europe.  His desire to continually devote his life to Christ everyday has made him a shining example of what it  means to live as Jesus lived.  Clare, Francis’ cousin, followed his example to defy expectations and life of a life of selfless service.  Campus Ministry is inspired by the Franciscan spirituality to encourage ongoing personal conversion to the life of Christ and service to the poor.

St. Thomas More High School

Father Christopher (TM '95) visited Lumen Christi yesterday! Read the full post below.

Lumen Christi Catholic School
Today our second grade students welcomed Father Christopher Klusman into their classroom. Father Christopher is the Chaplain at St. Thomas More High School, and is one of only 13 deaf priests in the world. The students learned a lot about Father Christopher's experience as a deaf child and priest. They also shared with him their "Hail Mary" song which they have been learning to sign for both the Feast of the Immaculate Conception and their First Communion.
Read more about Fr. Christopher at archive.jsonline.com/news/religion/127716843.html. It was truly a blessing to have him share his story with our students. See the comments for some pics from the visit.

Support STM this #GivingTuesday! On Tuesday, November 27, STM will join the global non-profit community by participating in Giving Tuesday, the global day of giving. Because of your support for last year’s Giving Tuesday campaign, STM was able to purchase interactive Smart Boards for each of our classrooms, and this year, we are asking for your support to upgrade technology in the Jerry Huennekens Gymnasium. For this year’s campaign, STM is requesting donations to purchase a high-definition projector and large display screen for the gymnasium, drastically improving the quality of our all-school assemblies and Masses. As you can see in the video below from last week’s Veterans Day assembly, our out-of-date projector and small screen do not match the high caliber of our speaker system or the size of our typical audience. Will you support STM this #GivingTuesday, helping us raise at least $6,300 for these much-needed improvements? ... See MoreSee Less
