Welcome to Campus Ministry!

Campus Ministry exists to help all members of the University community experience the love of the living God in their lives. By empowering students, staff, and faculty to take ownership of their faith lives, we encourage active participation in diverse ways of learning and living faith on campus. In particular, we form leaders, build community, and engage in prayer and worship. Rooted in the Catholic and Holy Cross tradition, we seek to meet all members of the UP community where they are in their chosen traditions, cultures, and practices. All are welcome and valued.

Each Tuesday from 9:00 - 9:45 p.m. and Friday from 12:30 - 3:00 p.m., the Sacrament of Reconciliation (also known as Confession) is available in the Chapel of Christ the Teacher. All Catholics are encouraged to receive God's grace in this Sacrament frequently, so, if it has been a while and you are not sure what to do, our clergy are very happy to gently guide you. If you are not Catholic, our priests will always offer a listening ear and wise counsel.
