Campus Ministry at Hanna Boys Center is rooted in Gospel values which upholds the dignity and unique giftedness of each member of its rich and vibrant diverse religious and ethnic community.  

The goals of campus ministry are to facilitate and encourage across campus the development of each person’s full potential according to their own spiritual tradition in a climate of trust, respect, joy, challenge, collaboration and celebration.  Boys and staff are provided opportunities for reflection, retreat, service and prayer which strives to foster the full development of each person spiritually, emotionally, physically and academically. The Campus ministry goals are informed and guided by the core values of Hanna Boys Center based on faith, education and caring. 

Core Values
