Nurturing Faith and Outreach on Campus and in the Community
Campus Ministry at St. Catharine College offers students the chance to deepen their experience of the spiritual life by offering a wide variety of opportunities for shared prayer, community building, theological reflection and service. The purpose of Campus Ministry is to plan and implement activities and programs that foster the spiritual development of the campus community.  Campus Ministry is deeply rooted in the Dominican
            Circle of Dialogue with Campus Minister                   
Students meeting with Campus Minister tradition and the quest for spiritual truth. Broad and ecumenical in approach and with a strong commitment to educating students to meet needs in our world, we highlight the pastoral vision outlined in the U.S. Bishops’ Pastoral Letter, entitled “Empowered by the Spirit: Campus Ministry Faces the Future

Campus Ministry works closely with the College Chaplain to serve the holistic education of our students by attending to the faith, spiritual and religious formation of the College community.  Throughout the year, students are invited to gather and reflect more deeply on their life experiences and how these experiences impact their relationships with self, others and God. The Campus Ministry program includes opportunities for spiritual development, education about community needs and personal outreach to build a better, more just and compassionate world. From spending a week helping rebuild homes in New Orleans to arranging weekly student visits with senior adults residing at Sansbury Care Center and helping 23 families make changes and adopt practices to qualify their houses as Green Pioneer Homes, there’s always something going on to engage students in service to their community and put their faith into action.
