Faith | Community | Justice | Respect
As a school founded in the Catholic faith by the Sisters of Loretto, Nerinx Hall incorporates spirituality as an active and empowering experience essential to student life.
Campus Ministry at Nerinx Hall strives to provide opportunities for our students and faculty to develop and grow in their faith through prayer and action.
Our Campus Ministry Team works with, encourages, and guides students and faculty to take active roles in planning and leading a variety of all-school liturgical experiences, including monthly Masses and prayer services, to celebrate the liturgical seasons and special feasts. There are also opportunities for Eucharistic Adoration throughout the year, and Reconciliation is offered during Advent and Lent.
Retreats are a highly valued component of the faith formation of a Loretto woman. They are a gift of time away from the busyness of daily life and schoolwork, where our students have the opportunity to grow in their faith, learn more about prayer, deepen their relationship with God, and strengthen their senseof and commitment to Christian community.
Freshmen and sophomores attend a full-day retreat off-campus. Juniors attend a 24-hour retreat either in the fall or spring semester, depending on their class schedule. Seniors attend a 48-hour retreat at Our Lady of the Snows. This retreat is designed specifically for the senior class.
Because the spiritual and faith formation of our young women is so vitally important as a part of their life journeys, participation in each of the four school-sponsored retreats is a requirement for graduation.
