Peer Ministry

Campus Ministry relies on student involvement and leadership to facilitate its various programs in faith, justice, and service. Students are invited to bring their talents and desire to serve to all of our programs.
Each year, Campus Ministry invites students to apply to become Peer Ministers through an application and interview process for participation in our Peer Ministry Classes.
The Peer Ministry Program at Belen Jesuit Preparatory is composed of High School students who have been trained to accept the role of spiritual leaders among the student body. They assist in the planning and execution of various liturgical activities throughout the year and they lead retreats for each grade level. They are committed to building up the Body of Christ at Belen Jesuit in their formal roles as student servant ministers as well as informally by their good example in daily student life.
Students in this group go through a formative program in conjunction with the Peer Ministry Classes to develop skills as servant leaders in the area of peer & pastoral ministry; i.e., evangelization – faith witnessing, peer support and group facilitating.

Peer Servant Leaders at Belen Jesuit hold the highest level of responsibility, from coordinating student faith sharing experiences, to peer immersion experiences in pastoral and service programs throughout our community, along with assisting in the development and coordination of Campus Ministry programs. Peer Ministers are expected to act as servant leaders and “Men For Others" as intentional disciples for Christ!

Belen Jesuit Preparatory School was founded in 1854 in Havana, Cuba by Queen Isabel II of Spain.  The task of educating students was assigned to the priests and brothers of the Society of Jesus (the Jesuits), whose teaching tradition is synonymous with academic excellence and spiritual discipline.  In 1961, the new political regime of Cuba confiscated the School property and expelled the Jesuit faculty.  The School was re-established in Miami the same year, and over the next decade, continued to grow.  Today, Belen Jesuit sits on a 30-acre site in western Dade County, only minutes away from downtown Miami.
