Campus Ministry

Dear McDevitt Family,

Welcome! My name is Tom Baker and I serve as the Director of Campus Ministry here at Bishop McDevitt High School. It is a great blessing to be able to serve the spiritual needs of our students, faculty, staff, alumni, and community. Please know you are all in my prayers.

The motto of Bishop McDevitt High School is "In Religion's Garden Grows Wisdom." The mission of the Campus Ministry Office is to foster that spirituality and create a religious community in which wisdom can grow. We have many offerings for students and teachers in terms of spiritual growth at McDevitt, and students are encouraged to participate fully in all of the offerings at Bishop McDevitt. It is my personal goal to engage every student, faculty, staff, and community member in their spiritual lives and awaken the curiosity in each individual's heart for the True, the Good, and the Beautiful. It is my constant prayer that all of us may grow in wisdom, humility, and love. 

Please know of my prayers for you and know that my door is always open. 

God's blessings and peace and love be with you,

Tom Baker
Director of Campus Ministry

Dear McDevitt Family,

I could not be more thankful that Bishop Gainer for giving me the opportunity to serve as chaplain to Bishop McDevitt High School. McDevitt is known for its tradition and excellence, and I am blessed and honored to say that I am now a part of such an amazing McDevitt family. I have already felt so welcomed by all of you, and I cannot thank you enough for that!

I very much look forward to getting to know all of you and seeing what God has in store for us as we embark on the next part of our faith journey. Know that my door is always open should you ever need me, so please do not hesitate to reach out. Once again, it truly is my honor and pleasure to be your chaplain. Please be assured of my prayers, and please pray for me as well!

Looking forward to an amazing year! 

In Christ,
