Welcome to Junipero Serra's Campus Ministry page. Home of The LIFE Team!
Junipero Serra's Campus Ministry is dedicated to providing our students various opportunities for Prayer
, Spiritual Retreats
, LIFE Night
and Christian Service
to help them grow in relationship with God.
Note: Please see the other campus ministry pages for more details on retreats and Christian service.
Here at Serra you will find students, faculty, staff, & parents in prayer together. Families pray together, and we are no exception. In addition to the prayer and faith instilled by our faculty, campus ministry aims to provide our students opportunities to grow in their prayer life.
Families pray for one another.
You may be familiar with the line "A family that prays together stays together". These words from Fr. Patrick Peyton are words that hold true for us here at Serra. Every month we gather as a Serra community to celebrate our faith with one another. You are invited to join in our next mass celebration on Thursday, August 23, 2018. Just send us an email so we can save you a seat!

The sacrament of reconciliation is available on campus for our entire Serra family. We are blessed to have Father Robert Hodges,O.Praem. & Father Ken Templin, SM on campus throughout the week to share this with us.
On special occasions throughout the year, priests from across the archdiocese join us to share this Sacrament with our entire student body.

Between classes, projects, homework, clubs, sports, and the numerous opportunities on campus, it is important that we make some time for quiet. In Adoration, we make this quiet time intentional and prayerful. It is another opportunity for our students to work on their interior lives.

Our retreat program empowers each student to explore and grow in their faith life. We provide each class level their own unique retreat experience beginning with their freshmen retreat and concluding with their senior retreat. Themes of community, faith sharing, moments or prayer and self reflection are built in each retreat which provides for a true encounter with Christ.

Our LIFE Night has a designated scripture and theme each month. We provide an environment in the cafeteria on a Tuesday evening where we gather building camaraderie, community and fellowship, proclaim how good God is, all of the time, break bread together and send one another back forth into the world knowing that we belong to a community that is empowered to live out the Gospel.
