Campus Ministry is an integral part of the culture at Regina Dominican. We engage our students in ongoing Catholic faith formation through prayer, worship, class retreats and service opportunities. Our Dominican Preachers program is comprised of a selective group of girls who leader our community and put faith in action.
Spiritual, intellectual and physical growth are essential to a Catholic education. In accordance with the Adrian Dominican mission, our students are encouraged to be young women of service, justice and responsibility.
Regina Dominican students annually affect global change by traveling to an orphanage in Guatemala to serve the underprivileged. Students involved in Campus Ministry organize volunteer opportunities for the Regina Dominican community and frequently partner Habitat for Humanity, Feed My Starving Children, The Ronald McDonald House and Girls on the Run.

Campus Ministry Retreats
The freshmen retreat is held in the first month of the school year and the theme of this retreat is CONNECT! This is a day-long retreat held in the Regina Dominican auditorium. The freshmen students are lead by juniors and seniors as they learn about the four pillars of Dominican spirituality: study, prayer, service and community. Through large group and small group activities, the students get to know each while learning about themselves and God. Junior and senior campus ministry students as well as Peer Leaders aid as leaders to the freshmen during this retreat.
The sophomore retreat is centered on the value of service. Caring for our neighbor is the goal of this retreat. Through learning, activity and theological reflection, the students come to understand more fully the value of service in our world. Students spend time together at Regina Dominican, travel to a service location of Feed My Starving Children program and spend the day serving meals by packing food for those who are affected by hunger and homelessness.
The junior retreat is held at the Retreat and Ecology Campus of Loyola University Chicago, in Woodstock, IL. The students complete an outdoor challenge course at the retreat center and participate in group activities. Then students are given time for reflection. The theme of this retreat is centered on coming together as one in Christ.
Kairos is a retreat offered to juniors and seniors. The students embark on a journey of discovery of self, each other and God. Through faith-sharing and special Kairos activities, the students discover what it means to be loved by God. The Kairos retreat is a three-day and two-night retreat held at the retreat center of St. Benedict Abbey in Benet Lake, WI. Kairos is lead by students and faculty members. Seniors that have attended a Kairos retreat at Regina Dominican may apply to be leaders of the Senior Kairos in the Fall semester or the Junior Kairos in the Spring semester.
