Campus ministers in Catholic high schools today play a vital and multi-faceted role. They are often responsible for retreats, liturgies, service learning, pastoral counseling, small faith communities, daily prayer, and much more. Doing Great Campus Ministry is a resource to help first-time campus ministers organize their ministries and to effectively involve others in the mission. It is also a must for experienced campus ministers looking for a new perspective and for school administrators and staff who rely so much on the campus minister to build the spiritual and religious atmosphere of their school. Doing Great Campus Ministry offers practical essays by five campus ministers who serve in diverse Catholic high schools in the Archdiocese of Los Angeles. The varied personal experience of these lay and religious ministers is enhanced by the diversity of the schools in which they minister from urban to suburban, with sponsorship by the Archdiocese, religious communities, and even a parish.
