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.
In an effort to make Mass more accessble for UP students and members of the community, we have adjusted our Sunday Mass schedule, beginning September 4, 2016. Starting then, all are invited to Mass in the Chapel of Christ the Teacher at 10:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Campus Ministry will also host a Student Mass at 9:00 p.m. in Tyson Hall's St. André Chapel. Reconciliation times will also change, with priests bearing available to celebrate the sacrament on Tuesdays from 9:00 p.m. to 9:45 p.m. and Fridays from 12:30 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. For our complete sacramental schedule, please click below.

Early in the fall semester, we invite all first-year students to participate in “Connect,” an on-campus retreat that introduces them to Campus Ministry offerings through an afternoon and evening of fun activities, small group conversations, keynote speakers, and more. Connect will take place on Sunday, September 11, 2016 from 12:00 - 7:30 p.m. in the Bauccio Commons and will include Mass and dinner. Registration is now open; click here to sign up! We encourage students of all faith backgrounds to attend!
