Here is what some of our Peer Support Students have had to say:
"I decided I wanted to become a peer minister because my faith is a central element in my life."
"A highlight was the Stressbuster Retreat put on by Campion and Luther at St. Michael's retreat house. It was a great getaway during a busy time in the semester."
"A great honour and outside event was attending the Catholic Students' Association Conference in Winnipeg."
"I feel very called to doing ministry with youth and young adults and the peer ministry program is exactly that."
"This year has been amazing. I've especially enjoyed helping with the Miller Grade 11 retreat and working with the Luther Peer Chaplains."
"I love Campion College and I find there's a great need for spirituality in the lives of students on campus."
"The highlight of the year came early in the first semester. Our Social Justice Awareness Day garnered lots of attention and signatures for worthy causes."
