Campus Ministry

Catholic Faith. Welcoming Spirit.

Campus Ministry provides a lived pastoral dimension to the University that is holistic for all community members – built on relationships rooted in the care of the whole person including faith formation, spiritual reflection, moral and ethical development, service and social justice, vocation and dedication to spiritual life and faith practice reflective of the Catholic and Benedictine mission and identity of the University. Ultimately, as a Catholic university, we must show that our (Catholic) faith is represented in all we do to discover the wisdom of and engage in dialogue with others. Campus Ministry helps the campus community accomplish that mission.

The community will be informed of bereavement notices through “Minute Meditation” emails sent out to the Benedictine community. We do ask, but do not insist, that you leave contact information in case we should have any questions on how to fulfill this request. Your personal information will not go beyond the Campus Ministry staff.
