1 - Campus Missions

Bring the Beatitudes to your campus! We helped found the campus ministry at the Colorado School of Mines and we also travel to student ministries in Colorado and beyond to offer talks and retreats on spirituality, discernment, and evangelization. We often collaborate with FOCUS, and we serve as chaplains and spiritual directors at the FOCUS summer training. Contact Fr. Anthony at beatitudesinfo@gmail.com
 
 2 - Young Adult Ministry

Young adulthood is a time of seeking, growth, and making many decisions that will affect the rest of life: finding the right college & major, job, vocation, spouse… It is such an important time to receive assistance from the Church and not go it alone. Moved with zeal to bring Christ to young adults who are in the midst of a crucial phase in their lives so that they may build their life on the Rock, grow in the spiritual life and prayer, mature in relationships, knowledge of God’s will. Our young adult programs include the School of Mines chaplaincy, Fiesta Praise (praise & worship nights), discipleship programs (Disciples of the Lamb), college campus missions and talks, spiritual direction, mission trips and pilgrimages.  We also host young adults to share in our Beatitudes' life, in the U.S. or abroad, for a period of time called School of Life.

5 - Vocational Discernment

“What is holiness for me? God loves me, and I love Him, but what is He calling me to do with my life? Priesthood, religious life, or marriage and family life? Would God like me to be a doctor, an engineer, or a journalist? To serve the poor, be a missionary, be contemplative, or be a part of the New Evangelization? Would this person I’m dating be a good spouse for me?” These are the fundamental questions that drive vocational discernment. Through this apostolate, we want to equip young adults with solid discernment principles, spiritual direction, prayer practices, and opportunities to grow in their spiritual life in our presence and collaborate in our work for the Kingdom.  Because families, sisters and priests are all present in our community life, we welcome people to see up close the beauty of each state of life.
