Campus Ministry on St. John’s University’s Staten Island campus hosted 30 high school students from six area Catholic schools for a Catholic High School Leadership Day on February 7.
“The high school students were very engaged and eager to learn and discuss the topics presented,” said Stephen M. DeBlasio, Director of Campus Ministry on the Staten Island campus.
The eight student leaders from St. John’s who assisted during the day actively participate in Campus Ministry programs, including Catholic Scholars. They helped facilitate discussion on various Catholic leadership topics through group activities, talks, prayer, and reflection.
High school juniors enjoyed the Staten Island campus and were eager to share what they learned in their groups. They had the unique opportunity of engaging in discussion on various leadership themes including “Being a Leader” and “Catholic Leadership” with students from their own and neighboring schools. The Catholic Scholars who served as facilitators were able to utilize the leadership skills learned through their program.
“Campus Ministry plans to continue to present high school students with meaningful programs at St. John’s,” said Mr. DeBlasio.
