Rooted in our common stem of faith and the Eucharist, Catholic Campus Ministry strives to grow from strangers into a sincere family that demonstrates the love of God and others. We prepare for a lifetime of learning after college by exploring our faith and expressing it through fellowship and service. We work collaboratively and creatively to share the Gospel and to build the Kingdom of God.
We provide educational programs, retreats and prayer services to deepen our faith, social events to celebrate our Christian community and community service projects to serve the needs of others.
Rite of Christian Initiation Adults (RCIA) meets in the Parish House Wednesday evenings at 7 PM. Anyone interested in receiving the Sacraments of Baptism, Communion or Confirmation must contact Fr.
