Faith & Service

Making Jesus Known & Loved

Columbus follows St. Marcellin Champagnat's vision to lead young people to the experience of personal faith and of their vocation as good Christians and virtuous citizens. We offer comprehensive theology courses and an enriching campus ministry program that work together to address the spiritual and personal needs of the entire Columbus family and we provide service opportunities in and out of school throughout the year. As Marists, we make Jesus Christ known and loved.

Marks of the Marist Student

List of 5 items.

  • We are Faith-filled Disciples:

    Marist students come to possess a strong sense of God and a personal relationship with Jesus, Mary, and Saint Marcellin Champagnat fostered through religious formation, a sacramental life, and prayer.
  • We are Empowered Witnesses:

    Marist students, recognizing Mary as their model and companion, become joyful witnesses to God's love in their lives, enabling them to see Christ in others, to live simply, morally, and with integrity, respecting all of life and creation.
  • We are Agents of Justice and Service:

    Marist students grow in their understanding of Catholic social teaching and stand in compassionate solidarity with the least favored.
  • We are Servant Leaders:

    Marist students recognize that they are lovingly created by God with unique gifts and talents which, through their Baptism, they are called to develop and share with the Church and the wider community.
  • We are Spirit-filled Members of Family & Community:

    Marist students embody a spirit which celebrates and welcomes all people as members of the one family created by God.
