Mission & Ministry

The mission and ministry of Villa Maria is rooted in her oldest and best loved tradition: The Children of Mary. This tradition calls all students to a way of life that is characterized by prayer, devotion to Mary, and service.

Participation in Campus Ministry, Service Learning, Social Justice initiatives, and Outreach invites students to deepen their identity as daughters of God the Father, sisters of Jesus our Redeemer, and children of Mary, our Mother. Students are formally inducted into this tradition with the reception of a medal of Our Lady. The Mission and Ministry leadership team and homeroom representatives meet regularly to coordinate activities.

Campus Ministry

Campus Ministry, an essential component of life at Villa Maria, fosters an environment of prayer and spirituality for the school community through liturgical celebrations, Eucharistic Ministry, prayer experiences, and retreats. Various groups help to serve the needs of Campus Ministry.
