Campus Ministry


"You were created by the God of love in God's image and according to God's likeness, to be a unique expression of that love. It is through you that God desires to manifest love to the peoples of the world in these times."  (Fundamental Principles of the Xaverian Brothers)

Campus Ministry is a vibrant, integral component of Saint Bernard School with student involvement at its core. In seeking to realize the vision of the Xaverian Brothers Sponsored Schools, we embrace our Catholic identity and promote the Xaverian spiritual values of humility, trust, zeal, compassion, and simplicity within our school community and beyond. Students are encouraged to develop their relationships with God through prayer as well as service.

The chapel is open daily for prayer and meditation. Regular school-wide Masses are held in the Russell L. Boisvert Auditorium. Campus Ministry also coordinates the Sacrament of Reconciliation, retreats, Xaverian leadership opportunities, and more.

Students are encouraged to visit Mrs. Haulotte in the Campus Ministry Office to learn how to become involved!

XBSS Junior Retreat

The annual XBSS Junior Retreat was held at the Holy Family Retreat Center in Connecticut from March 3rd through 7th.  The Xaverian Brother's Fundamental Principles of Humilty, Simplicity, Compassion, Trust and Zeal were used to guide each day.  

Along with 71 students from other Xavierian High Schools, Saint Bernard School XBSS students, Sam Davis '19, Nathaniel Avery '20, James Babinski '20, Allison Codner '20, Tucker Freeman '20, Hope Geise '20 and Bridgid Kunka '20 participated in the retreat.  Students were charged to return to their school communities and use the gift of their leadership to make a difference. Check out the video below for a glimpse into the retreat week.
