Campus Ministries

The campus ministry program at McGill-Toolen provides opportunities for the spiritual development of all students. It is a peer based ministry program, allowing students to minister to other students. It does so through numerous different activities:

Fall/Spring Retreats

These retreats are the apex of McT Campus Ministry. A team of seniors spend months and many many hours preparing an awesome weekend retreat. The weekend is under the direction of the Campus Minister, Daniel Johnson, but is completely run by the students. Students have the opportunity to hear talks, participate in small group discussions, participate in the sacraments, and have an all around good time! The weekend takes place at Camp Cullen on beautiful Mobile Bay. The little fee covers all retreat materials and all meals.

Any seniors interested are invited to be part of the retreat team tp plan each retreat.

Pro-Life Club

The Pro-Life club provides opportunities for students to be involved in promoting a greater respect for life in all stages - from conception until natural death. The year is highlighted by an annual pilgrimage to Washington , D.C. to participate in the March for Life. The club also participates in the annual area Life Chain, holds a Holy Hour for Life, attends pro-life conferences and works to support 2B Choices for Women, a local crisis pregnancy center.


This lock-in is for 7th and 8th grade Catholic students to help them grow in their faith. A team of McT junior students plans games, talks and more geared to a 7 th and 8 th grade audience. This is a great opportunity for grade school students to meet students from other schools. Listening to high school students share about their faith lives gives younger students insight into the challenges and opportunities of high school.

Praise and Worship

Once a week, students gather to worship God through inspirational songs. A short teaching is given on matters the Bible, matters of faith, or another topic. All students are welcome to participate! Currently, Praise and Worship meets every Monday night at 6:00 PM in the Toolen Chapel.
