As a Catholic high school following the Augustinian tradition, the programs in the Department of Campus Ministry support Austin Preparatory School’s Mission Statement and emphasize the importance of lives of service to others in the spirit of Jesus Christ. They are designed to promote faith development and foster the personal and spiritual growth of every person in the Augustinian tradition, with emphasis on the Augustinian characteristics of Veritas, Unitas and Caritas. Campus Ministry provides opportunities for members of the school community to deepen their understanding of the Gospel message through attendance at Masses, prayers services and retreats; performing required service work; and participation in other projects. These programs also attempt to raise consciousness and encourage action regarding contemporary moral and social problems. Campus Ministry seeks to build a living faith community of students, faculty, staff and parents.
