    Feed your soul

    Guided by our Franciscan Catholic heritage, Campus Ministry provides opportunities for members of all faith traditions to encounter God in their daily lives.

    As a community of faith and love, we strive to meet the spiritual and pastoral needs of the University as they are reflected in the Franciscan Goals of Higher Education. Staffed by a team of Franciscan friars and lay ministers, we assist the University community in becoming instruments of Christ’s peace as exemplified by St. Francis of Assisi.

    Campus Ministry seeks to assist all students on their spiritual journey, helping them realize and become the person that God has created them to be. Campus Ministry is a presence of Christ for you on campus.  Whether you are facing a difficult decision, struggling with God’s Will, or just need to talk, we invite you to consider Campus Ministry as a resource. 

    Campus Ministry is located on the first floor of Saint Francis Hall.

      The goal of The Dead Theologians Society, is to bring the lives and writings of the saints to the young adults of today, in order that they might be challenged and encouraged to grow in holiness.  Through the use of time honored Catholic prayers, devotions and a firm grounding in the Scriptures, the Fathers of the Church and the Saints, young people are drawn to an ever deeper knowledge of Christ and His Church.
