Theological Reflections is a unique Catholic faith-based mentoring program in its tenth year at Bishop Ward High School. Students are matched one-on-one with a community mentor and meet once a month during the school year. Students and mentors read and reflect on the Sunday Gospel for that coming weekend, build relationships, and share a meal together. This is an additional opportunity for students to grow in their faith and mature into young Christian men and women.

Mentoring Relationships
Theological Reflection mentorship is a four-year commitment, meeting nine times each year. Mentors are expected to be faithful practicing Catholics and have an open heart to meet with teenagers. If you discern that you are called to this specific ministry opportunity, please contact Dr. Emily Saatcioglu at or at 913-229-3884. 

All volunteers must be Virtus trained and in compliance. For information on Virtus please contact Mrs. Sonya Sanchez at or 913-229-3812. You can also visit the website to create or view your account at
