St. Anselm’s Abbey School, on the grounds of a Benedictine monastery in northeast Washington, D.C., seeks to promote the spiritual, personal, and intellectual development of young men with demonstrated academic achievement. Our school, serving grades six through twelve, with its roots in the values of the Christian gospel and Catholic tradition, strives to create a community built on respect for truth, love of learning, regard for human dignity, and tolerance. We pursue this goal by leading our students through a challenging and balanced program of study in the arts, sciences, and theology that gives them a solid preparation for the demands of college.
The Campus Ministry and Service Program Coordinator will work as part of a team providing on-going religious/spiritual formation experiences for students, faculty and staff including the junior year Kairos retreat and other religious/spiritual events. The Coordinator will work with priests of the Benedictine sponsoring community, the Dean of Students, and others on staff to assist with organizing the student masses and coordinating sacramental services and liturgies throughout the school year. This person will supervise and coordinate the School’s service program for juniors and seniors and may be asked to teach a class in the School’s Religion Department.
The Coordinator will act as a liaison with the Religion Education Department and other agencies of Archdiocese of Washington, as well as other schools, and the local community as it pertains to the school’s Campus Ministry and Service program.
The Coordinator must be able to reflect the Mission of St. Anselm’s Abbey School to the student body. As such, the Coordinator must be able to model and facilitate the acceptance of Catholic-Benedictine values, identity and the mission of St. Anselm’s to the entire community.
Benefits of the school environment include relatively small class sizes, a generous budget for materials, and considerable freedom in teaching styles.
