Campus Ministry

At Cathedral High School in El Paso, Texas, our Campus Ministry department is dedicated to guiding students on their spiritual and personal journeys within the unique context of our binational community. Situated on the border with Mexico, our school embraces diversity and understands the importance of responding to the needs of both sides of the border.

Through mentorship, leadership development, faith exploration, teamwork, and community outreach, we actively cultivate a vibrant and inclusive academic environment that reflects our binational identity. Rooted in the Lasallian tradition, we are committed to living out the Gospel values of faith, service, and community, aligning ourselves with the calls of Pope Francis for solidarity and social justice.

Throughout the school year, Cathedral's Campus Ministry provides opportunities for students to engage in retreats, worship services, and prayer gatherings that honor our binational heritage and promote unity across borders. Our immersion programs and service initiatives are designed to address the needs of our local and global communities, inspired by Pope Francis's teachings on mercy, compassion, and care for the marginalized.

In addition, our Lasallian Youth program encourages students to emulate the life and deeds of our Founder, Saint John Baptist de La Salle, by fostering a spirit of inclusivity, empathy, and action. By embracing our binational identity and responding to the calls of Pope Francis, we strive to build a community that reflects the values of love, justice, and solidarity in both word and deed.
