College Campus Ministry

Catholic Campus Ministry at our colleges and universities is one of the most important and fruitful ministries in the Church today, creating missionary disciples in a new generation. It is here where vocations are often discerned and where young people encourage each other in faith. Over the past year, College Campus Ministers have expanded their ministries to include new practices that reach young adults in the virtual landscape they inhabit, while still providing opportunities for in-person prayer and engagement. Reaching out to freshmen prior to the new school year, virtual rosary nights and Bible study-groups, and prayer-care-packages sent to students are but some of new innovative approaches helping students connect to one another and to Christ. Appeal funds give ministers the ability to meet the expenses of this new outreach.
