FYM Campus Ministry

From the Director

Hi and Welcome to the Page for Franciscan Youth Ministry (FYM)!

I’m Fr. Matt Foley, the Director of Franciscan Youth Ministry. FYM has a long history at Archbishop Curley and across our Franciscan Province.  FYM serves as the structure for our campus ministry and is vibrant and full of life. FYM is one of the larger co-curricular activities at Archbishop Curley High School and the 2016-17 academic year is filled with prayer opportunities, community building and plenty of service. The mission of FYM is very simple- promote a life of holiness, motivate students in their faith, inspire students to serve others.

I’m excited about working with our young men and the Curley community to grow in their life of faith.

Living Stations of the Cross

At the end of Lent, a Curley tradition is to celebrate the Stations of the Cross.   This year, members of the senior class reenacted the last hours of Jesus.  As Jesus makes his way around the auditorium, the action stops at poignant moments--his sentencing, his falling under the weight of the cross, meeting his mother Mary, being helped by a stranger, having his tunic stripped off of his body and being nailed to the cross he carried.   What sorrow could be greater than a mother holding the dead body of her son before burial.  Yet, the story does not end in the tomb.  After three days Jesus is raised to new life by the grace of God--death no longer has power over him.   This is the powerful, wonderful moment we celebrate on Easter Sunday.


Closed retreats are considered an integral part of the Religious Studies program and are therefore mandatory for all students of Archbishop Curley High School.  The Freshman Retreat is held on the campus during the first quarter of the school year for all incoming freshmen students.  Specific details are explained in the special notice sent to all students involved.  Retreat experiences for Sophomores, Juniors and Seniors are scheduled during the school year, taking place either at school or off campus. All retreats are included as graduation requirements.


There's no better way to get to know Archbishop Curley High School than in person.
