About Campus Ministry

Campus Ministry dedicates itself to pastoral care, faith formation, and furthering the common good through practice of the Benedictine hallmarks in our community.

We celebrate the Catholic acknowledgement of the rich diversity of faiths at Benedictine University. Through our programs and services, we aim to assist Benedictine students, faculty, staff, and administration in their spiritual and personal growth. 

You are invited to get involved with the wide variety of opportunities we have to offer! Whether you enjoy serving those in need, would like to use your musical talents in worship, or are seeking to learn more about your faith or others, our doors are always open!
