Campus Ministry

Faith and service are critical to the spiritual formation of Academy men. At CBA, we arrange a program of instruction, mentoring and prayer, specifically designed to foster the life of the spirit in every student.

Campus Ministry at CBA starts at the individual level. Central to our program is the daily experience of prayer. School days are immersed in prayer: the opportunity to attend daily Mass in the Chapel, a school-wide morning prayer, and beginning most class periods with prayer. Each student is given numerous reminders of just how important it is to keep a constant dialogue with God.

The prayer life of our students is informed by a solid program of religious instruction. While academically rigorous, the faculty of the Theology department never truly separates the object and the subject of study. Religion-focused courses do more than merely feed the head.

Christian Brothers Academy is fortunate to have a Chaplain and a Campus Minister. Father John Zec is instrumental in the CBA community’s celebration of both daily and school-wide liturgies throughout the school year. Mr. Matthew Butler, a member of the Theology faculty since 2007, also serves as the school’s Director of Campus Ministry.
