Campus Ministry

Welcome to Kennedy Catholic Family of Schools Campus Ministry Page!

The Campus Ministry Department of Kennedy Catholic seeks to foster lives of faith and service among the students, faculty, and staff. Campus Ministry provides students at Kennedy Catholic with opportunities to deepen and encounter Christ as well as opportunities to live out their discipleship through participation in the weekly celebration of the mass, reconciliation, retreats, and service in the Shenango Valley and the surrounding areas. The many programs of the Kennedy Catholic Campus Ministry are centered around the Eucharist and based on the school’s motto, Christo Servire – to serve Christ.
