Campus Ministry

Whatever your religion, or even if you have none at all, our Campus Ministry Team is here to provide guidance, support, and to offer meaningful ways to explore life’s big questions.

As a Catholic university, we’re guided by our clear mission, strong sense of identity and firm set of values. We act in Truth and Love, we’re committed to the pursuit of knowledge, the dignity of the human person and the common good. We know who we are. That’s how we can help you understand yourself and the world around you. Our Campus Ministry team members can be with you every step of your university life, whenever you need us. We run social events, provide hang-out spaces, offer reflection and prayer experiences, participate in social justice and community engagement, and keep our doors open if you ever need to talk.
