Peer ministry is an opportunity for students to respond to their baptismal call as a servant, faith witness, and leader among their peers in events and activities at BSHS and in the community. The following courses are available for juniors / seniors.
"Faith in Action" Course
In this Peer Ministry course, juniors strive to do more for Christ, sustain their prayer and sacramental lives, and become the Christ-like leaders our society needs. They learn the moral concepts and precepts that govern discipleship while investigating and engaging in practical ministry experiences at school and in the larger church.
Specifically, students plan and execute retreats for the school and wider community, prayer services, Masses, service initiatives, and other special events throughout the school year. Throughout the year, students put to practice their instruction of Catholic Social Teaching by implementing campus-wide and community social justice education and charity drives. Students assume active ministerial roles to their peers and leadership roles on campus.
"Living as Disciples of Jesus in Society" Course
Through this Peer Ministry course, seniors come to an understanding of the Roman Catholic Church’s teachings on social justice and vocations. In addition, students learn the Christian theology and spirituality of retreats. Basic leadership skills in planning, organizing, and facilitating retreats to students of various grade levels at BSHS and beyond are also learned. Students use these skills to lead student facilitated and organized retreats to their peers.
