About Us


Campus Ministry fosters the spiritual lives of students, acknowledging that engagement with faith is integral to developing whole persons inspired to build a more just, humane and sustainable world.


Campus Ministry will serve an ever-broadening group of students to cultivate spiritual transformation. We will be known as a primary source of pastoral care which is grounded in the Christian faith, embraces Catholic and Ignatian traditions, and honors the diversity of religious, spiritual, and philosophical traditions on campus.


Gather. Discern. Transform. 

Campus Ministers 

We have six full-time Campus Ministers, as well as the Mission Church staff. We are lay people and ordained ministers. We have a diversity of experiences that informs how we each approach our ministry. Above all, we are committed to fostering the spiritual lives of our students.

Spirituality Facilitators 

Spirituality Facilitators provide outreach on behalf of Campus Ministry in the residence halls on campus. The "SF" team is comprised of SCU law and graduate students who have chosen to make their home in the residence halls while seeking their degrees. Though the individual Spirituality Facilitators represent diverse backgrounds and perspectives, each member of the team is passionate about spirituality and supporting students in their spiritual growth and development.
