Service Learning

Students at Bishop Luers High School have the opportunity to be involved in multiple service ministries throughout the year, sharing their gifts with young and old alike throughout the Fort Wayne community. Student-led service projects include fall and spring canned food drives for the Franciscan Center and Community Harvest Food Bank. Baby clothes, diapers, and formula are collected each Advent for the Women's Care Center. Lenten service projects include Rice Bowl collections for Catholic Relief Services and collections for Heifer International. Bishop Luers students volunteer at area hospitals, nursing homes, and schools, as well as with Big Brothers and Big Sisters and Scouting organizations. Some students even coach grade school athletic teams or teach in parish religious education programs.

Peer Minister

Peer Ministry is open to all students who apply in April for the following school year and who are chosen through a discernment process. Peer Ministers serve for one school year. Peer Ministers serve the Bishop Luers community in several ways, such as liturgical ministers, sacristans, liturgical environment, choir and music ministers, greeters, prayer leaders, servers, and sound and set-up ministers.


Knights for Life

Bishop Luers students gather every Thursday morning at the Abortion Clinic to pray the Rosary for Life. Additionally, students gather in our school chapel every Thursday morning at 7:15 A.M. to pray the Rosary for Life. Mrs. Ann Isch is the moderator for Bishop Luers Knights for Life.
