  • Bringing student-led music and a vibrant spirit of worship to theEverest Collegiatemasses
  • Promoting good friendships and faith  sharing
  • Offering an opportunity for service to the  community

Campus ministry will include organizing events on and off campus, including organizing the First Friday Mass, training altar servers, lector, music ministry, bible studies, apologetics, and group rosaries.

Creative Writing:
Creative Writing Club is a chance for students to enhance their writing skills outside of the academic framework.  We will focus on three genres: poetry, fiction, and drama. Students will develop a deeper appreciation of these genres through study, discussion, and written work. In this club students will also become more confident with their voices and their ability to work as a writing community.
