Pastoral Ministry

Strake Jesuit College Preparatory is grounded in the conviction of St. Ignatius Loyola that God is to be found in all things.
All activities of the school, from biology to band, from football to forensics, have this objective: to find God in all of God's wondrous creation.

Strake Jesuit believes that yearning and longing for union with one's Creator is at the core of every person's being. Our community strives to aide all our students, regardless of faith, race and denomination, in their pursuit of God.

The mission of the Department of Pastoral Ministry is to support the Strake Jesuit community in its work of finding God in all things. To this end, Pastoral Ministry serves the community through liturgies, retreats, service to the poor and disenfranchised, pastoral counseling, Christian support organizations, and faculty/staff spiritual formation. With the inspiration of St. Ignatius of Loyola, we do all things for the Greater Glory of God.

Pope Francis

Youth is a time of life when your desire for a love which is genuine, beautiful and expansive begins to blossom in your hearts.
How powerful is this ability to love and be loved... I urge you: Do not be afraid of true love.

  • School Wide Mass

    Communal worship is a vital dimension of the spiritual life of Strake Jesuit, the celebration of the Eucharist being preeminent. School wide Masses are celebrated on a monthly basis and several Strake Jesuit events are accompanied by the Eucharist, such as Father-Son Breakfast and Baccalaureate Mass. In addition to these special liturgies, daily Mass is celebrated before the start of each school day.
