Campus Ministry

Campus Ministry at Mercyhurst Prep School seeks to express in humanistic ways the Gospel message of love and service. Inspired by the charism of our foundress, Catherine McAuley, and our sponsors, the Sisters of Mercy, Mercyhurst Prep gives the highest priority to a Campus Ministry program which fosters reverent, faith-filled worship, community building, and an orientation to justice and compassionate service. Mercyhurst Prep students are encouraged to assist the CM adult team by participating in the planning and carrying out of all Campus Ministry programs and activities.


Campus Ministry invites the MPS community to share in:

  • Liturgical celebrations
  • Prayer
  • Seasonal devotions for Advent and Lent
  • Fund-raising for charity
  • Dances, picnics, and other celebrations of community
  • Retreats
  • Balloon ministry
  • Volunteer service programs
  • Mission trips

“The 109th U.S. Congress took the occasion of National Catholic Schools Week to praise the academic excellence of Catholic schools and thank Catholic educators for their contributions to the country. Senate Resolution 362 saluted the high academic achievements of Catholic schools and added that they present a broad curriculum that emphasizes the lifelong development of moral, intellectual, physical and social values in the young people of the United States.” NCEA notes“
