Campus Ministry

The Campus Ministry department aims to spiritually develop all Carroll students at grade-appropriate levels.

Peer Ministers

Peer Ministers are chosen by the faculty to serve as the leaders of faith formation and religious celebration at Archbishop Carroll. They plan liturgies and retreats, engage in peer mentoring, and strive to live an example of faith-filled high school life.


All grades experience a yearly class retreat to bond with classmates and to learn about a particular spiritual theme. Campus Ministry also offers two optional retreats. The Underclass Retreat is a two day, one night experience for 9th and 10th grade students focusing on faith and identity. The Kairos Retreat is a four day, three night spiritual experience for 11th and 12th grade students that focuses on their personal relationship with God.


Campus Ministry also supports various service activities throughout the year, such as our annual Thanksgiving Food Drive. Carroll has recently partnered with Special Olympics DC to support their Polar Bear Plunge event in February. Campus Ministry assists students in completing their annual service requirement by connecting them to various nonprofit organizations in the DC area.
