About the Show
Welcome to “Faith on Campus” where we will be celebrating the sacramental and community life of Catholic schools, parishes, and university Chaplaincies, in the Archdiocese of Toronto and beyond.
During this program you will hear from the many voices and see the faces of our young people in who are actively involved in campus ministry in our high schools, post-secondary Catholic Chaplaincies, and our local parishes, hearing about their evangelization efforts, lived faith experiences, and sharing their personal stories of witness. We will celebrate the essential Ministry of high school chaplaincy leaders, the incredible talents and gifts of our parish youth ministers, and the exciting initiatives and worship of our post-secondary Catholic Chaplaincies.
Finally, we will ask and examine the question of Catholic Education. Why choose a Catholic education? Is there a difference? Why do so many students who are not of the Catholic faith tradition attend our schools? How can we live out our faith on Campus?
