Lenten Fundraising Challenge
Cristo Rey students take the giving spirit of the Lenten season very seriously. Every year, our Campus Ministry team hosts a fundraising competition between classes, with all money raised going towards an organization in our community that needs help. This year, our students chose to raise money for a cause very close to our hearts – Cristo Rey’s “Hope Walks.” Hope Walks in the Bronx are weekly missions that share meals, clothes, and love with people experiencing homelessness in our neighborhood.
Along with inciting some healthy competition between classes, this tradition serves as a great example for our Campus Ministers to teach our students about sacrifice in the Easter season. 2021’s Lenten Fundraising Competition raised $1,026.33 total! We are so proud of the work our students are doing to make a difference in their community.
Cristo Rey’s Senior Class retreats are a cornerstone of our Campus Ministry programming for our students. Typically, our senior boys and senior girls travel to different retreat centers outside of the city and spend a night together off campus, taking a break from CRNYHS and getting to know themselves and one another a bit better. This year, seniors unfortunately were not able to take the usual overnight trip due to the pandemic, but they did get a full day on campus dedicated to those same goals.
Senior girls gathered on March 19th, followed by the boys on March 26th. Students listened to reflections from their teachers and mentors, spent time in personal meditation, and participated in small group discussions. Our seniors did a great job of dedicating themselves to these retreats despite the circumstances, making for some beautiful memories!
