Student Ministry Team
The Student Ministry Team consists of juniors and seniors at CBHS who work with the Mission and Ministry Team in planning, organizing, creating, and implementing campus ministry events. They help in the creation of schoolwide prayer services and activities as well as lead those worship activities. They also serve as small group leaders during the sophomore retreat and are trained as ministers to serve at Masses as altar servers, lectors, and Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion. These students actively and consistently work to develop and strengthen their own faith so that they can be leaders on campus.
Sophomore Retreat: What do I believe and how do I live out those beliefs?
Students will be encouraged to consider their beliefs and what they value and how those beliefs and values impact their actions daily. Through small group discussions, they will reflect on their own faith traditions and the way those traditions shape their beliefs and share with their peers. Adults and peers will give witness talks reflecting on Scripture and other texts to examine how we are called to live our lives and treat others. Various activities and reflections will encourage students to view each other as brothers and treat each other accordingly.
Senior Retreat: Who am I? And who will I be as I prepare for graduation?
During the retreat, students have the opportunity to reflect on their lives and their relationships—particularly with themselves, their friends, and family—and the role their faith plays in those relationships as they prepare to leave high school and embark on the next stage of their lives. These retreats are led by faculty members John Ward (firstname.lastname@example.org

Senior Day of Service
Wednesday, October 30, 2019, will be the fourth senior day of service. While the rest of the school participates in the national PSAT test day, the senior class is loaded up on buses and sent out to various service organizations around the city of Memphis. In 2016, they journeyed to 16 different service sites around the city. The boys spent the morning working at places like the Mid-South Food Bank, St. Peter Villa, the Dorothy Day House, and the Ave Maria Home. Many fathers have accompanied their sons as chaperones on this day. If you’d like to serve as a chaperone, have information about places to serve, or need more information, please contact Lindsey Neuman at firstname.lastname@example.org
