The Office of Campus Ministry at Carlow serves the pastoral and spiritual needs of the University community and provides a variety of opportunities for service, reflection, prayer, and worship – which both support and reflect the Core Values of the University.

The Office of Campus Ministry is one of the four offices within the Center for Mercy Heritage and Service.

Every effort is made to connect students with local faith communities of their preference in the Oakland and surrounding areas, which is home to a rich diversity of spiritual traditions.

Lenten Reflection Journal

Lent is a special time of reflection and renewal. During this Jubilee Year of Mercy, we are pleased to provide the 10th annual Lenten reflection journal as a source to guide your journey and deepen your experience through this spiritual season. We invite you to download the Lent 2016 Daily Reflections (PDF).

Students are invited to tend to their spiritual well-being as they grow through their academic and personal lives at Carlow University. The Office of Campus Ministry provides programs, liturgies and services which support and nurture students as they face the challenges and joys of life while pursuing their careers and vocations.
