    "Campus Ministry was one of the best things about my SCU experience. It gave me a community to grow together with, meet new people, and to also grow in my spirituality and faith. I believe Campus Ministry really gave me my footing and my calling on campus, so I'd say the impact was very large."

    Celia is currently a social worker for the County of Monterey and will be starting graduate school in the Fall for her Masters in Social Work.
    "Campus Ministry opened up a space for me to feel comfortable and happy with who I am. Being on Search Retreat and CLC helped me discover parts of myself I didn't know I had. It was truly a humbling experience to be in such a safe space with rich conversation and such loving and supportive people. I am unbelievably grateful for the doors that Campus Ministry opened for me and I appreciate everyone's warm hospitality. I never felt out of place when I walked in there and I always knew it could be a safe haven for me.
