 /  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.

Congratulations to the Cavalier Powerlifting Team! On Saturday, seven Cavaliers competed in a powerlifting meet at Cudahy High School. Five of the seven athletes medaled, and two of those students are going to state!

“Coach Litscher and I are proud of these student athletes for the hard work and dedication to training," said powerlifting coach and STM science teacher Mike Fricke. "Strength training has a unique way of instilling confidence and growth in young men and women, and in the end that is the most important outcome anyone would want of our students at St. Thomas More High School.”

Stay tuned for more updates on our powerlifting team as some of them compete in Germantown in February and then at the state meet in Appleton on March 2 and 3.
