Nurture your Spirit as you grow in wisdom. 

The Office of Campus Ministry serves the pastoral and spiritual needs of the University community and provides opportunities for service, reflection, prayer, and worship.  In the Catholic Mercy tradition of our founders, we welcome everyone and strive to meet the needs of those from all faith traditions in ways which both support and reflect the Core Values of the University.
