STM’s Ministry of Presence helps students explore their faith through both traditional and informal methods. Each week, STM’s chaplain leads a morning Mass for students, parents, faculty, and alumni. STM also holds monthly all-school Masses, which often incorporate special celebrations and religious holidays. At each Mass, students can receive Communion, and the sacrament of Reconciliation is offered at least once per semester.
At STM, we know that everyone experiences God’s love differently. Many teenagers need more of a personal connection than a traditional Mass can provide. STM’s Campus Ministry room provides students with a safe, welcoming place to reflect, relax, and rejuvenate with their classmates. This relaxed atmosphere fosters mutual respect between students and facilitates stimulating discussions of faith and spirituality that help connect the Church’s teaching to students’ own lives. Because of this family-like environment, STM students develop a shared sense of pride and comradery, forming deeper, more meaningful relationships with their classmates and teachers and making STM a more inclusive place to learn and grow together.
