  • The Ambassador Club

    The Ambassador Club is a select group of young men who are passionate about The Hall. Coordinated by the Director of Admissions, these students will accompany Mr. Bengel to high school fairs and middle school visits, representing Calvert Hall and interacting with prospective students and families.  Another key role during an Ambassador’s career at The Hall is his opportunity to be a tour guide at our annual Open House.  An individual tour with a prospective student and family seals the deal, as young men make their high school choice.  Finally, freshmen ambassadors play a unique role in the legacy of Calvert Hall, as they are chosen based on requests or interests to spend the day with an 8th grader when they sign up to be Cardinal for a Day.  Be an ambassador and help future Men of Intellect, Men of Faith and Men of Integrity.

Some topics include: effective decision making, appropriate use of social media, speaking up, dealing with loss, respect and relationships, and alcohol and other drugs. The success of the program, since its inception, has been due to the dedication of the peer educators and their unique ability to establish strong relationships with the freshmen. Click HERE to visit the Peer Education Page.

  • Peer Ministry

    Peer Ministry - The word ministry comes from the Greek word for “serving at table.” Peer Ministry, therefore, is a selected group of thirty juniors and seniors that are trained to “walk with” their peers. Peer Ministry is simply one student helping another student cope with the stresses of everyday life with an open and accepting attitude. For the peer ministers, ministry isn’t necessarily about changing others. It is about changing themselves so that they can become better friends to those on the journey. Peer Ministry isn’t about fixing problems or taking away others’ pain, but it is about sharing struggles and being compassionate friends. Peers are there for any student who needs someone to talk or walk with them on their journey. In terms of the program, peer ministers have a large role in CHC’s junior retreat program. Every peer writes and presents a “witness talk” on retreat, sharing his experiences and his faith journey. Peers also facilitate small group discussions and lead prayer. Peers also lead prayer experiences on our Freshman and Sophomore retreats as well. Peers provide examples and role models to younger students in their capacity as retreat leaders. The goal of the program is to get students involved in, and thinking more about, their own faith. The peers are a voice for the Campus Ministry Office and recruit other students for service opportunities, liturgical ministries, and prayer experiences throughout the year.
