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.
Students at Bishop Luers High School have many retreat opportunities! All students will have a day retreat during the school year. Bishop Luers makes available all Diocesan High School retreat information and registration forms throughout the school year. Students are invited to attend various retreats with the Franciscan Sister in Mishawaka, Indiana and the ND Vision Retreats held at the University of Notre Dame.
Our students and staff are blessed to have area priests available to celebrate Mass and the Sacrament of Reconciliation. Fr. Paolo Degasperi and Fr. Patrick Hake serve as our school chaplains. In addition, our chaplains, pastoral minister, and principal are available to students, faculty, parents, and families for individual pastoral guidance, support, and referrals.
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.
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.
