Campus Ministry Hosts Praise and Worship Session During Catholic Schools Week
BILOXI, Miss- St. Patrick Catholic High School’s Campus Ministry hosted a skit that provided students the opportunity to learn the benefits and consequences of the choices they make during this Catholic Schools Week. This kicked off a 90-minute rally of praise and worship that included the opportunity for students to participate in the Sacrament of Reconciliation.
During Wednesday’s Adoration service, Campus Ministry students put on a skit called “The Game of Light.” It tied into the theme for Catholic Schools Week and the overall annual theme for Campus Ministry; “Illuminate.” Students were presented with questions of faith and the skit showed the positives or negatives that each answer provided. This was followed by testimony from Principal Dr. Matt Buckley.
“Jesus said that he is the light of the world and that we too are called to be part of that light,” says Mr. Terry Creel, theology teacher.
Each grade level, in their Theology classes, created candles that represented their grade and the faculty joined in as well. The candles were used during the Praise & Worship Rally on Wednesday and at the Junior Ring Mass on Thursday. Their ability to illuminate our celebration of the Eucharist is a reminder of the responsibility of all to illuminate the world by spreading the message of Christ.
