    Feed your soul

    Guided by our Franciscan Catholic heritage, Campus Ministry provides opportunities for members of all faith traditions to encounter God in their daily lives.

    As a community of faith and love, we strive to meet the spiritual and pastoral needs of the University as they are reflected in the Franciscan Goals of Higher Education. Staffed by a team of Franciscan friars and lay ministers, we assist the University community in becoming instruments of Christ’s peace as exemplified by St. Francis of Assisi.

    Campus Ministry seeks to assist all students on their spiritual journey, helping them realize and become the person that God has created them to be. Campus Ministry is a presence of Christ for you on campus.  Whether you are facing a difficult decision, struggling with God’s Will, or just need to talk, we invite you to consider Campus Ministry as a resource. 

    Campus Ministry is located on the first floor of Saint Francis Hall.

     VICTUS will be showing the Catholicism video series at 7:00 PM on  Tuesdays in the Campus Ministry Lounge.  Enjoy free food, fellowship,  and discussion about faith.  All are welcome to attend.

     Into the Breach is a men’s group that explores the role for men of faith in today’s society.  The men’s group meets weekly on Wednesdays at 8:30 pm in the Schwab Hall Vista Room.  All are welcome to attend.  

     Eucharistic Adoration - As Catholics, we believe that Christ is truly and substantially present in the Eucharist, therefore, the Blessed Sacrament is to be given the same adoration and devotion that is accorded to Christ.  This form of Adoration is where individuals can have a quieter, personal, and more private prayer time with our Eucharistic Lord.  Adoration will be held every Monday between 12:30 and 5 pm in the Immaculate Conception Chapel.  For more information or to sign-up for a time slot contact Paul Girardi in Campus Ministry.  All are welcome!

     If you believe in the importance of investing your time in friendship, the Church, and helping others, the Knights of Columbus is for you. The Knights of Columbus is an organization of Catholic men, 18 years of age and older, that derive a great sense of satisfaction from being able to develop lasting friendships with each other while helping the less fortunate. Every day, the K of C provides its members the opportunity to discover the importance of charity, unity, fraternity and patriotism to our country and the world.  If this sounds like an organization you would like to be a part of or would just like more information contact Paul Girardi in Campus Ministry.

    Campus Ministry will host a praise and worship service on Monday nights at 8:30 pm in the Agape Chapel.  All are welcome.
