Chaplain & Pastoral Care

Our priests are here for everyone on campus.  They provide pastoral care, spiritual direction and counseling services for faculty, staff, students and families. Working in collaboration with the school’s guidance counselors, the pastoral care techniques utilized by the chaplains are to listen, support, and encourage the individual within a faith-based Roman Catholic tradition.

Respecting the faith traditions of all who seek pastoral assistance, the pastoral care team remains faithful to the mission of CCHS by shepherding the flock in a loving and caring manner. This shepherding encompasses a wide variety of issues including, but not limited to, spirituality, personal faith and relationships with God and others, health, social and moral education, behavior management and emotional support.

Fr. Martin, Fr. Paul, and Fr. Richard are our campus priests and are on campus throughout each school day. They can be contacted either by phone or email for an appointment during or after school.

Spiritual Direction, Support, Conversation and Sacrament of Reconciliation

Our Miles Christi priests are here to support students, employees and families. Families may reach out to an individual priest or to the Mission & Ministry office for spiritual support of any kind. Our priests are available by appointment arranged via email or in-person conversation. Students may take time out of their Religious Studies class to meet with a priest for spiritual direction, support, conversation, or Reconciliation.

Reconciliation is available for students without an appointment at Chapel Nights and on Junior and Kairos retreats.  When possible, Lenten Reconciliation/Penance Services (for students and employees) are held during Lent. Information on the Lenten Penance Service can be found on the calendar and in newsletters and announcements.
