Campus Ministry

The mission of Seton Catholic High School Ministry is to assist the Seton community in the development and growth of a flourishing spiritual life. Guided by the Gospels, the Church, its ministries and Magisterial teachings, Seton Campus Ministry aims to collaborate with students, parents, faculty, staff, administrators, and pastors to reach this goal.  We recognize that God has given each of us unique gifts to respond to His call, through the power of the Holy Spirit, to build His Kingdom of a living Christian Faith Community. 
 
 
 
Students will be lead and mentored by Campus Minister and Theology teacher, Erin Duffy, eduffy@setonhigh.org, who has been an instructor and served in campus ministry for over 7 years.  She attended University of Portland and graduated with a BA in Theology and a minor in Sociology.  Ms. Duffy has served as a Youth Minister and high school Confirmation Director in Orange County CA for 3 years.  Ms. Duffy also taught religion and was the Assistant Campus Minister for 2 years at an all-boys Catholic high school in Baton Rouge LA.

Campus Ministry Retreat Model

Today, more than ever our teenagers are in search and need of "authentic" persons.  We cannot lead others to God, if God does not lead us ourselves.  Pope John Paul stated in his Theology of the Body, "...the task given to man by God is a conditional superintendence."  We are meant to some degree to effectively "pastor flock under our care," therefore, Seton Catholic Prep's model for leading retreats falls under the acronym, R.E.A.C.H.

  • Holy
  • Charismatic
  • Authentic
  • Evangelical
  • Relational
