University Ministry wants to support students of any and all faith backgrounds in their desire to grow with God and with their faith community. A variety of services and group activities are available, in addition to those in the University's Catholic tradition. You don't need to feel alone in your search for God. Be part of a prayer group or bible study, join one of the choirs, volunteer to be a student liturgical minister.
