Bishop Amat High School seeks to form a community of faith-filled people committed to Christian truth based on the teachings of the Roman Catholic Church. The Campus Ministry and Christian Service programs are means by which this goal is met. The mission of Bishop Amat’s Campus Ministry Program is threefold:
  1. To foster a faith community among the students, faculty, and staff regardless of religious affiliation.
  2. To encourage individuals to take personal responsibility for their own faith.
  3. To encourage the pastoral, spiritual, and moral development of the Amat family.

Community Support – Funerals
A death in the family is a time of grief for the Bishop Amat community. Should there be a death  in the immediate family of a student, the school encourages the student’s  religion class and teacher to attend the funeral services as a means of lending  support and sympathy. Students will be bussed to the Funeral Mass and returned  to school afterwards. Parental permission for each student is arranged in  advance. All other students who wish to attend the funeral are required to  bring  a parental note specifying when they are to leave and to return to  school.
