二年级学生

In their sophomore year, Students are again accompanied by the First Years Chaplain, Mr. 乔治·多伊尔. Students have the opportunity to encounter Christ in Scripture and service. In their Religious Studies course, “Christ: The Eternal Word,” they study the Bible through a variety of lenses.
The sophomore class celebrates Christian community at their Family Mass and learn new ways to pray in Chapel Reflections throughout the year. 在 大二撤退, “Living Word: People for and with Others,” retreatants explore Scriptural themes of God in Creation, 在约, 在基督里, 在圣灵里. In their service commitment of twenty (20) hours during sophomore year, students have the opportunity to live for and with others by building relationships with people who are marginalized.

3项清单.

  • 二年级家庭礼拜仪式

    The Freshman-二年级学生 Family Mass and Dinner will take place on Sunday, 9月11日, 2022年下午4点开始.m. in the 神圣家族教堂. This Eucharistic celebration brings into focus the relationship between studying Scripture and serving people in need.
  • 大二撤退

    The 大二撤退 is led by juniors and seniors under the direction of the First Years Chaplain. It is a unique opportunity for students to step out of their comfort zone, build new relationships with classmates and leaders, and spend time in conversation with God. There will be a lot of fun, too! Retreats take students away from the daily rhythm of school to provide them with the time and space to quiet their hearts and minds for prayer. The theme of 大二撤退 is Living Word. 了两天, students explore Scriptural themes of God in Creation, 在约, 在基督里, 在圣灵里, with the ultimate goal of growing as people for and with others.
  • 二年级学生 Service Commitment

    The Christian call to service is rooted in the life of Jesus Christ. 出于爱,人类, Jesus became human and lived every day for God and for others, 直到他死去.

    在大学二年级期间, students commit to 20 hours of service ideally at *one pre-approved service site that will stretch them out of their comfort zones. They are challenged to serve people different from themselves: people who are poor and marginalized, 饿了, 生病的, 岁的, 无家可归的人, 或残疾的. This commitment to going beyond familiar communities helps students live the Grad at Grad values, especially being open to growth, committed to doing justice, 宗教, 和爱. In building relationships through service, our hope is that students will see the face of Christ in the poor, and that they might strive to be Christ's face for others. Suggestions for possible service sites include nursing homes, 男孩女孩俱乐部, 无家可归的人 shelters and soup kitchens. *Due to the uncertainty of the pandemic, we are mindful of accommodations that best suit health and safety concerns.  Please discuss any concerns with your parents about fulfilling the above goals directly with a member of Formation and Ministry, and we will come up with a safe and satisfactory plan together. 

    Students also actively partake in Chapel Reflections through their Theology class. These reflection sessions provide context, 结构, and opportunities for deeper reflection on students' service. Chapel Reflections culminate in a final reflection paper due in May 2023 and focused on connections between Scripture and service.

    Students must meet with the First Years Chaplain or other FAM staff member before beginning their service. Once the site is approved, students must follow the instructions for tracking their hours online. All sophomores must have their service sites pre-approved and 10 hours completed by Thursday, 12月8日, 2022. The final deadline for reporting the remaining service hours for the 2022-23 school year is Thursday, 4月27日, 2023!

    Your First Years Chaplain is available to help you find a service site that works for you! The Formation and Ministry office is located on the third floor next to Room 330. 请随时来!
