Not Catholic? With very few exceptions (such as receiving Communion at Mass and receiving absolution in the Sacrament of Reconciliation), everything that Campus Ministry offers is open to students from religious traditions other than Catholicism.  The staff of Campus Ministry includes Catholic and Protestant ministers, and the AC Interfaith Alliance brings students from various religious traditions together for dialogue and opportunities.

Not Religious?  Campus Ministry welcomes students who are not affiliated with a religious tradition but who want to explore and deepen their spiritual life.  

There are many opportunities:

  • Get to know the campus ministers at First Thursday Bagels in Tinsley
  • Participate in a retreat
  • Attend the student-led Candlelight Prayer in the Chapel
  • Practice meditation in the Interfaith Prayer Room in Tinsley
  • Go on a SEND service/immersion trip
  • Listen to one of your professors talk about spirituality at Agape Latte in Charlies
  • Learn more about the Bible in a Bible Study group

Any of the Campus Ministers would be happy to speak with you and give you more information on groups and programs that may be of interest to you.
