Spiritual Life

Campus Ministry

This is a community of faith, and faith formation reaches into all aspects of school life.
Keeping the faith for all students-
Our Office of Campus Ministry, guided by our campus minister, creates programs that engage the entire school community in the practical message of the Gospel. As part to the SNJM network of schools, Campus Ministry also brings the messages and core values of the Sisters of the Holy Names to life, creating a welcoming place for people to expand, explore, and express their faith.

We welcome students of all faiths to share in our faith formation activities of the Catholic tradition. At the same time, these students are encouraged to develop a relationship with God according to their own beliefs.
