Guided by our Catholic Franciscan values, upholding and celebrating the dignity of every human person and goodness of creation, Campus Ministry offers a variety of opportunities for spiritual
reflection, conversation, worship, prayer, topical Bible study, interfaith dialogue and meditation.
Our Catholic, Franciscan roots are the foundation for all we do and the reason we’re committed to creating a welcoming and inclusive campus. Campus Ministry connects us to those roots and builds bridges.
