Every Student at Cristo Rey is required to attend a yearly spiritual retreat.
Students will have opportunities to go off campus to a retreat center in the area to be in communion with God and one another.
Additionally, current students have an opportunity to shape the retreat program for future classes.
We warmly welcome you into our long-standing Jesuit tradition of service. Here at Cristo Rey, service is an active response to our faith; a faith that is inspired by and pursues the example of Jesus by feeding the hungry, clothing the naked, visiting the infirmed, and inviting the outcast into friendship. We realize that in doing this we are able to grow closer to God and all of God’s beloved creation. In giving ourselves away we receive more than we could ever imagine.
Community service hours are considered part of the curriculum at Cristo Rey. Community Service hours are of equal importance to academic requirements and are mandatory to advance to the next grade level and for graduation.
Students have an opportunity to actively participate in our Daily Masses and All-school liturgies as lectors, altar servers, or musicians.
The Campus Minister is always available for individual pastoral care.
In addition, we have a Campus Ministry Club which meets weekly. Here students have a chance to discuss, question, seek, and explore issues pertaining to faith and spirituality. Students of all faiths and beliefs are welcome to share in this safe space.
As the Catholic Church teaches us, charity and justice go hand in hand. In addition to service projects, students will have opportunities to examine structural sin that comes in the form of injustices, inequality and oppression, and to explore ways to become active participants in building a world that honors the inherent dignity of every human person.
