Campus Ministry

From day one, students at Muskegon Catholic Central learn about God’s love for each of them.  The Gospel values of love, respect and compassion are taught and practiced in every classroom. Morning prayer, weekly Masses, celebration of the Sacrament of Reconciliation, and a monthly Rosary offer our students the opportunity to spend time with Jesus.

By the time they reach adolescence, the children have a firm foundation in the Catholic-Christian faith, and are filled with the knowledge of God’s special friendship with each of them.

As they mature, our students learn about the richness of their faith and are given opportunities to put that faith into action through prayer and service.  From weekly Mass, opportunities for Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament and the Sacrament of Reconciliation, retreats, and serving  local food trucks, the students of MCC are able to advance God's kingdom among each other, and throughout the Muskegon Community.

High school students are also given the opportunity to participate in WINGS, a peer ministry program at MCC. WINGS students have the opportunity to plan and serve on retreats, become Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion, Lector at Mass, and work with the Campus minister to help foster the Catholic culture at MCC. In addition, many of our students participate in the Annual March For Life in Washington D.C, and the annual Spring Break Mission trip.

Spring Break Mission Trip

For our 2017 Spring Break Mission Trip students served in Rockcastle County, Kentucky through the Christian Appalachian Project (http://www.christianapp.org/). Students assisted with home repairs and had time for fellowship, prayer and reflection. Below are some reflections from those who went on the trip.

Over spring break, this year's MCC mission trip took their second trip to Kentucky.  This was once again a fun, exciting, and memorable trip. The group worked through the organization, Christian Appalachian Project (CAP), which serves some of the most impoverished counties in Kentucky. Thirteen students and two chaperones attended this year's mission trip.

The mission was to work with elderly housing. When arriving the team was split into two groups. One group worked to build a wheelchair ramp. A second group worked to re-side a house for a lady that was diagnosed with a degenerative spinal condition.

Through this experience the students were not only given the opportunity to serve others, but also to get to know them and talk with them about their story. The students came away with an appreciation of what they have and also a desire to share their abilities with others. Most of all they were able to see Christ in the poor, elderly, and the disabled and learned to treat them as Christ would.

I would encourage all of our students to think about att
ending this great opportunity next year!

Check back during the 2017/2018  school year for information about our next Spring Break Mission Trip.
