As a part of “Movember” here at Catholic Memorial we celebrated a Campus Ministry Knight Day where we took a day off of classes to promote Men’s Health as a school. During the opening assembly, four faculty members presented talks which shared a personal experience of becoming or being a man of faith and character. These talks lead into a video on men’s mental health and well-being, shown through the perspective of professional athletes, which set the tone for the day of reflection in action on our aspiration to form men of faith and character, and the importance of taking seriously men’s health and well-being.
After the opening assembly, students participated in activities at three different stations, which focused on: Health and Wellness, Masculinity and Emotional Wellness, Men’s Health Facts and closed with a Thanksgiving Prayer Service. These stations included activities such as yoga, meditation and mindfulness; incorporated films centered on mental health; and included interactive activities the CM students brought back from the 2019 ACTION Workshop.
