Festival of Lights

A discussion of Campus Ministry would not be complete without a word about Festival of Lights. 

Festival is a two-night celebration of word, music and dance – but it is also much, much more.  It begins in October with the choir rehearsals – and the choir is a perfect example of who gets involved in Campus Ministry.  All walks of Roselle Catholic life are represented - sports teams, yearbook, drama, and gamers.

Festival is also the Giving Tree, where over 300 gifts are brought in by our students and faculty, and distributed to families in our communities.  It is 120 students making Gingerbread Houses that are sold to raise funds for our service trips.  It is over 30 clubs, classes and teams decorating table-top Christmas trees for delivery to area nursing homes.  It is  music practices in the chapel and dancers rehearsing in classrooms.  The school is buzzing with activity for a month and a half – until performance nights. 

It doesn’t end there, however – after the performances, the real work of Christmas begins - toys, food and trees are delivered throughout the county by our senior students, with the help of many faculty members.
