SFHS is proud of our holistic approach to assisting our students in reaching their fullest potential as leaders for tomorrow. Along with an excellent academic program, we provide opportunities for our students to develop their spirituality through an active campus ministry. Our campus ministry, respecting all faith communities, facilitates this individual growth and development with various activities including weekly all school Mass, grade specific retreats, community service experiences, and presentations by acclaimed international Christian speakers and authors. The ultimate mission of our campus ministry is to nurture our students to be living examples of the teachings of Jesus Christ today and every day!
The community service component of the religion program is a real-life religion lab. The love Christ has shown each of us can be best returned to Him when we love and care for our fellow human beings.
The community of St. Frederick celebrates the Eucharistic Liturgy (Mass) weekly. Periodically all-school liturgies are held to celebrate Holy Days of the Catholic Church and special occasions such as Homecoming or the end of school. Celebrating Mass together is one way that our school builds community. All students and faculty, whether Catholic or not, attend. All students are welcome to participate by joining in the prayers, singing, listening, and responding reverently.
SFHS students of any faith tradition are offered the opportunity to serve in the following ways:
Because the school believes in its mission to assist students in developing a relationship with Jesus Christ, students have many opportunities for prayer, reflection, and reconciliation.
Parents, grandparents and other SFHS supporters are also provided opportunities to pray for our students, faculty, staff, and administration. Examples of these prayer times include:
The religion department curriculum includes traditional Biblical studies, surveys of modern ethical problems, and Catholic philosophy for daily living. For complete descriptions of these courses, refer to the Curriculum Guide. In addition, the environment of St. Frederick provides a religious atmosphere as a basis for all its curricular and co-curricular activities.
