Campus Ministry is the heartbeat of SMR! As a Catholic school, SMR helps to enrich the spiritual and sacramental growth of our students through campus ministry programs and community service activities.
The Campus Ministry Department encourages and supports students’ spiritual growth and development. Students are able to seek spiritual formation through Mass, theology class, daily prayer, service opportunities, mission trips, retreats and spiritual direction.
Schoolwide liturgies are celebrated once a month and/or on Holy Days of Obligation. In addition, students may participate in Adoration, the Sacrament of Reconciliation and daily Mass in the Chapel.
The Christian Service Program encourages all students to offer their time and talents to people or nonprofit organizations who are in need of assistance. The program urges students to accept and reach out to those who may be less fortunate.
All service hour documentation is submitted online by each student to be verified by Campus Ministry. Students will receive training on using the online submission service.

Spiritual retreats provide students with the opportunity to take time out and evaluate the faith aspects of their lives and to renew their sense of the centrality of God in all they do. Retreats are required for grades 9–11 and optional for seniors.
WINTER WEATHER POLICY FOR RETREAT
If St. Mary's county schools are delayed the first day of the retreat, students will meet at the cafeteria when school is scheduled to open. If St. Mary's county schools are closed the first day of the retreat, the retreat will be cancelled and rescheduled. If other counties' schedules differ with St. Mary's, school policy for such situations will be followed and honored.
