Campus Ministry

Our Campus Ministry program provides a series of experiences directed to help each student become men and women of faith, purpose, and service. We look to foster a sense of Catholic culture in the Cristo Rey community through liturgies, retreats, service, and programming. All students complete Christian service hours all four years to put their faith into action. They volunteer in a variety of ways, serving their churches, communities, and those in need in the greater New York City area.

The trip to Buen Hombre, Dominican Republic was a life changing experience that allowed to me be part of something bigger than myself. I had the opportunity to give back and learn the value of true selflessness.

Men's & Women's Wilderness Retreat >


The retreat allowed us to get out of our comfort zone and do things we otherwise wouldn’t. It was an experience that brought us closer as a class and allowed us to interact with peers we usually don’t.

Being a chaperone >


This experience was one of the most rewarding as it allowed me to truly bond and get to know my students outside of the classroom. As we reflected on our identities as women, children of God and sisters & brothers, we were able to begin to unpack the complexities of our identities and our common bond as Christians, people and family at CRB.
