" Christ has no body on earth but ours, no hands, but ours, no feet but ours. Ours are the eyes through which the compassion of Christ looks out upon the world, ours are the feet with which he goes about doing good, ours are the hands with which he blesses his people. "
- St. Teresa of Avila

The Motto of HSM this year is "SOAR". This motto provides the perfect guidance for the school to more fully develop in faith and Catholic identity on campus. Each year, Campus Ministry will provide a programming plan based on the motto to introduce and nurture our students’ and faculty's understanding of and commitment to our motto and mission here at HSM.
Each year, Campus Ministry will host a back-to-school Kick Start Rally entitled “Living Our Motto,” where students, families, faculty, and staff will be reminded of the mission and motto of our school and where we will introduce the year’s theme. This year, the theme is “SOAR” Isaiah 40:31.
As always, Campus Ministry is committed to each person both on the campus of HSM and supporting HSM.
