Our school community is dedicated to a vision of ministry of faith formation predicated on the religious and spiritual development of our students. Through educational, ministerial, cultural and athletic programs, students respond to a call to service by implementing Gospel-centered values and Catholic social teaching in the lives of discipleship and prayer.
Our campus ministry program is rich in traditions. The students at Greensburg Central Catholic benefit from a 6 year religious curriculum that has been approved by the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops. Students are required to complete a minimum of 96 hours of community service to graduate.
The office of Campus Ministry at GCC is here to provide our students, faculty and families with opportunities for growth in and experience of their faith. Rooted in the understanding that one’s faith always involves a call to a relationship with Jesus Christ, we seek to both nurture and nourish the spiritual lives of individuals, as each makes their way along life’s winding and oftentimes complex journey.
Campus ministry builds, strengthens and supports the community of believers within our school. Committed to enhancing the community’s understanding and application of GCC’s core values of faith, dignity, integrity and justice, the office of campus ministry encourages practices that put faith into action by way of service to the larger community and in doing so make manifest the lived reality of each of our core values.
The Centurion, our model and mascot, stands out as a striking example to all, of our combined call to live, authentically, these core values. The Centurion is everywhere at GCC. He is on logos, uniforms, gym walls, stationery, diplomas, and, most particularly, in our mission, vision and values statement. But, who was this mysterious Roman centurion? At the foot of the Cross, the centurion knew he had looked into the eyes of Christ and said, “Surely this man was the Son of God.”
We, like the Centurion, are called to have faith and stand up for the truth, which may mean stepping out of our comfort zone. We pray for courage and strength to imitate our model of faith, the Centurion. It will cost us but we will gain respect and admiration when we make a choice for Christ as the centurion did.
