Empowered by the Spirit
Campus Ministry is the public presence and service through which properly prepared baptized persons are empowered by the Spirit to use their talents and gifts on behalf of the Church in order to be sign and instrument of the kingdom in the academic world […] where commitment to Christ and care for the academic world meet in purposeful activity to serve and realize the kingdom of God.
Proclaiming Christ on Campus
Campus Ministry answers Jesus’ call to his Church to proclaim the Gospel, the Good News of his Victory over Sin and Death, introducing especially the “nones” to the person of Jesus. To those who answer his call, campus ministry accompanies them toward union with the Body of Christ through the sacraments, and mentor them in the Way of Discipleship to Jesus.
