Benedictine University is an inclusive academic community dedicated to teaching and learning, scholarship and service, truth and justice, as inspired by the Catholic intellectual tradition, the social teaching of the Church, and the principles of wisdom in the Rule of St. Benedict.
Benedictine University aspires to be a thought leader in Catholic higher education. We seek to provide a transformative and integrative educational experience grounded in Benedictine values, helping students shape lives of meaning and purpose as engaged citizens who care for the earth, welcome people of diverse faiths and cultures, and promote the common good.
As a Catholic Benedictine institution, prayers grounds us. Campus Ministry hosts virtual communal prayer every Tuesday at 12:30, each week with a different theme. Each prayer service is recorded and placed on the Prayer website. Join in or visit this page to be in prayer with us.
Every Thursday evening we host Taize Thursday. Taize Prayer, originated in Taize, France. It is a time of meditative music, scripture, and reflection. Join us each week as Kevin O'Donnell, St. Benedict Chapel pianist and pastoral musician, leads us in our prayerful journey. Each Taize Prayer is placed on our website. Be in prayer as a family!
