Forest Ridge is grounded in Catholic tradition and enriched by the diversity of 27 different faiths represented in the student body. Students reflect on morality and justice, and act—locally and globally—on issues that they feel strongly about. Forest Ridge girls build compassionate courage that they can call on for the rest of their life.
As a Catholic, Sacred Heart school, Forest Ridge provides opportunities for the community to engage in personal and communal prayer and reflection. Working to help maintain and strengthen the school’s Catholic identity, the Campus Minister serves the entire school community.
The Campus Minister performs a ministry of presence, letting each student know she is supported and cared for, through attending extra-curricular activities such as sports, theater, dance, and more, and by coordinating special liturgies, prayer services and fun activities. The overall goal of the ministry is to promote in each student an active and personal faith in God, whatever that means for her.
Liturgies are an important part of the Forest Ridge school year. There are several all-school Masses each year, celebrating both liturgical seasons and Sacred Heart traditions. Students help plan and participate in each liturgy and prayer service. All students are encouraged to participate, regardless of faith tradition.
