Faith is a key part of our curriculum here at St. Lawrence Seminary. We strongly believe that boys need a strong foundation of Catholic faith to help guide them in life and develop them into mature, well-rounded adults. We foster a relationship with Jesus that directs a lifetime, both inside and outside the classroom.
Faith in the Classroom
While a majority of our classes are focused on college preparation, giving students a strong foundation of theological classes is just as important. Students at St. Lawrence have the option to take a wide variety of faith-based courses.
Spiritual Direction Program
The Spiritual Direction program is one of the most important programs we offer to students. Starting sophomore year, students must choose a director on campus to be their spiritual director as they explore their own Catholic faith. Boys meet routinely with their spiritual director and are given a place where he can be accepted by an adult without rejection or judgment. Questions can be asked or answered, and problems of whatever kind can be discussed.
The spiritual director will help guide the student and offer advice, but the true journey belongs to the students alone. This whole program is vital in developing strong Catholic values that guide our students even after they leave St. Lawrence Seminary.
Service ministry is an opportunity for St. Lawrence Seminary High School students to transform the world through reverence, the vision of Capuchin ministries throughout the Province of St. Joseph. Through ministry to others, St. Lawrence students build relationships, improve the quality of life for those served, learn new skills, share gifts and, above all, live out the gospel invitation to serve others.
We pride ourselves on giving our students a wide variety of ministry opportunities so they can choose the one that means the most to them. We have more than 14 options for students to choose from, including local Fond du Lac and Milwaukee area charities and nonprofits.
