Grounded in the university's Catholic identity and the charisms of our foundation religious communities, Campus Ministry's outreach embraces people of all faith traditions.

Each campus has a team dedicated to the wellbeing of staff and students; meaning that we are here for you. Whether you're interested in a particular event or if you'd just like to talk to someone, our door is always open.

As a Catholic university, liturgy and prayer is at the heart of all that we do.

We have a dedicated team of chaplains who with our local Campus Ministry teams guide and animate the prayer life of the university.

All throughout the year, there are regular celebrations of weekday mass as well as times when we gather as a community to mark significant moments in the life of the Church, the university and our nation's calendar.

The Sacrament of Penance is also available before or after mass or by appointment with your local campus chaplain.
