Following in the mission of the University to educate both heart and mind, Campus Ministry seeks to support all students in their faith journeys, including students who do not identify as Catholic or Christian.
All students are welcome to attend Mass and participate in Campus Ministry retreats and programs.
Campus Ministry Programs:
Fish: Fish is a student-led Christian community that gathers for worship, faith-sharing, and fellowship on a weekly basis and draws students from many denominations. Fish also engages in fun community-building activities, coordinates the residence hall Bible Studies, and facilitates carpools to off-campus church services.
Small Groups: A variety of opportunities for conversation and community in a small group setting are available. We encourage students of all faith backgrounds to participate and enrich the conversation with their unique perspectives! Learn more about Living Stone faith-sharing groups, the League of Extraordinary Gentlemen (LXG), and the Sisterhood of Heartfelt Empowerment (SHE).
Retreats: Retreats take place throughout the year and offer a range of ways to engage with questions of faith, vocation, and identity while in college. Retreats range in size and focus from a small silent retreat to individual hall retreats to our flagship Encounter With Christ. All are welcome!
The Muslim Prayer Room is accessible from the lower level of Christie Hall, next to the International Student Services Office. The room is open Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m.–4:30 p.m., and students can also request after hours access. Click on this link for further information.
Many Faiths, One World is a student club dedicated to education about the various faith-based and theological perspectives spread throughout our world. Members create and participate in opportunities for interfaith dialogue, deepening community understanding of religious pluralism. Find out more on the club’s Facebook page.
