    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.

  • Welcome 2017!!

    •  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.
    •  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!
    • MARCH ON THE MOUNTAIN-January 27, 2017--Join the Saint Francis community for our 4th annual March for Life, Friday, January 27th.  Help us proclaim the sanctity of human life!  Rosary at 10:30 am, the march around the mall begins at 11 am, Mass is at 12 noon.  All are welcome to participate.
