Faith & Service

Campus Ministry at Helias Catholic High School strives to support the faith formation of the students, staff and school community by providing opportunities that lead to a deeper awareness of the message of God’s love and opportunities for worship, supporting the formation of a community of faith, and the promotion of service as a way of life.

  • Mission of Witness
