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.

Immaculate Conception Chapel was established to serve
the sacramental and spiritual needs of the Saint Francis University community.
In addition to regular celebration of the Eucharist and sacrament of
reconciliation, the University is normally allowed to celebrate the sacrament
of matrimony for alumni and other members of the University community, with
permission from the rector of our local parish, the Basilica of St. Michael the
Archangel. During Holy Week, the Chapel may also celebrate the sacraments of
initiation - baptism, confirmation, and first Eucharist - if there is
sufficient student interest and preparation.
Infant baptisms and funerals are rarely celebrated in
Immaculate Conception Chapel, as the proper place for celebrating these
liturgies is in a parish. Please contact
your local parish for these liturgical services.
Sunday offertory contributions are restricted and used
to pay for ongoing and future capital improvements to the Immaculate Conception
Chapel. Checks payable to “Saint Francis University” will be processed by the
Advancement Office, and acknowledged in a letter from the Advancement Office.
These letters should be kept for tax return purposes.
