Forming Faith Leaders

As a Catholic school in the Jesuit tradition, Cristo Rey's faith formation is an essential component of our mission. Our school strives to celebrate and nurture the cultural heritage and faith of our families.

As the only Catholic high school in Chicago serving exclusively Spanish speaking families, Cristo Rey is proud to serve as a bridge to faith for our students and their parents. Campus Ministry provides Cristo Rey students numerous opportunities to deepen their relationship with God in the context of a Christian community.

In addition to learning about faith in religion class, students participate in retreats, liturgies, and other programs. At Cristo Rey, students are invited to pray, reflect, serve, discuss, and play - all for the greater glory of God. Students take on many leadership roles as ministers to one another as retreat leaders, lectors, Eucharistic Ministers, and prayer leaders.

All-school liturgies are celebrated once per month, and each grade level has a class Mass once per quarter. Additionally, Mass is celebrated several times a week before school. All families, alumni, and friends of Cristo Rey are invited to attend.


Ignatian Family Teach-In 2023

This fall, eight Cristo Rey students traveled to Washington DC for the 2023 Ignatian Family Teach-In for Justice, organized by the Ignatian Solidarity Network. This conference gathers nearly 2,000 youth from across the country to hear from speakers, pray, network, and advocate for justice on Capitol Hill, the goal of IFTJ is to gather students that are driven and are open to be advocates for social change.

Led by Manager of Service Rocio Juarez '10 and Religion Teacher Kelsey Napoli, the students participated in the conference, met with staffers for Illinois Congressman Jesús "Chuy" Garcia to advocate for legislative policies, and also made time to take in the sights of our nation's Captial.
