Campus Ministry is the heart and soul of our campus! Everyone is always welcome at our spirit-filled masses and prayer services. Our amazing weekend getaways to our retreat center at Chapman Lake offer a break from studies, a chance to think about where you’ve been and where you’re going, and fun with friends.

Chapman Lake Retreat Centerplus or minus
You came to the right place. We own our own retreat center on a beautiful lake. The University's Retreat Center is located approximately 30-minutes from campus on picturesque Chapman Lake. The Retreat Center is used regularly by students, faculty, alumni and administrators. The center, complete with dining facilities, meeting rooms and a chapel, provides overnight accommodations for 50 people.
What if I am not Catholic?plus or minus
Come on down! All are welcome. Who am I? What do I want to do with my life? Catholic or not Catholic, all college students face similar questions about God, life, love and vocation during these four years. The Jesuit tradition believes God works personally with everyone. God’s love and grace are available for all of us.
There are various opportunities around campus, ranging from weekly service opportunities, to events like Safe Trick-or-Treat, and even domestic and international service trips. The service possibilities are endless.
