What is Campus Ministry
Campus Ministry at Padua Franciscan High School helps students to integrate their faith into their daily life and into the daily life of Padua Franciscan High School.
Campus Ministry offers students many opportunities for leadership experiences in Student Ministries. Students are also given the opportunities to develop relationships with their brothers and sisters who are poor or marginalized by service and peace/justice experiences.
We are blessed to have three staff members in Campus Ministry.
Mr. Matt Harley coordinates Campus Ministry by overseeing the retreat program, talking with students who are in distress and coordinating liturgy planning. He also coordinates Eucharistic Ministers, Peer Ministers and Reach Out Ministers, works with the Kairos retreat program, and is a moderator for our student mission trips.
Mr. Chris Zgrabik is the assistant to Mr. Harley and oversees the Christian Service program.
Mrs. Becky Popiel is the Campus Ministry Administrative Assistant who keeps the office running smoothly. Mrs. Popiel greets students when they come to campus ministry. She is the friendly voice that greets you when you call the office.
