Religious Diversity at St. Ҵý

As an expression of its Catholic identity, the University of St. Ҵý welcomes people of all faith traditions into its campus Ҵý. In support of the university’s mission, Campus Ministry dedicates itself to serving the university in accord with the call of Ex Corde Ecclesiae to “promote the pastoral care of all members of the university Ҵý”.

We serve the aspirations of our students to mature in the integrity of their own faith traditions by supporting the practices of prayer, Ҵý, observance, learning, and service particular to each.

While we are rooted in the Roman Catholic Tradition, we worship as a Eucharistic Ҵý and work to connect those of other faiths to worship opportunities that feed them.
