Ed Fitzpatrick – Associate Director of Campus Ministry, Bishop Denis J. O’Connell High School (Role: Co-Speaker)
From Pro-Life outreach to Eucharistic adoration, to Christian service opportunities, to Kairos, athlete, and grade-level retreats, a vibrant Campus Ministry program can radically enrich a student’s faith and transform their broader Catholic school experience. In this session, faculty members of Bishop O’Connell High School will discuss the strategies, successes, and setbacks we’ve seen in bringing these initiatives to life. Join us as we go beyond brainstorming to outline clear, actionable steps in how your school can craft a Campus Ministry program of your own.
