Campus information

The Mission of Campus Ministry at St. Thomas University is to build the bridge between the Catholic Church and higher education by assisting every individual at the University community to grow in faith while promoting the well being of higher education and society as a whole.  Campus ministry recognizes four essential Characteristics of a Catholic Institution in higher education: “1) Christian Inspiration; 2) Faith Reflection; 3) Fidelity to the Christian Message; and, 4) Service to the Church and Humanity (Excorde Ecclesiae).”  The word “Catholic” means universal. Therefore, Campus Ministry, composed by faculty, staff, students and administrators, it is also sensitive to the diversity and interfaith dimension of the University’s population by welcoming people from all faith traditions.  The staff invites all the community to participate by bringing different gifts and talents that enrich the community at St. Thomas.  The Campus Ministry Staff welcomes each individual with open arms and invites students, faculty and staff to join the team for prayer and worship at the Chapel of Saint Anthony and enjoy a cup of coffee in the Campus Ministry office located in Mimi Dooner Hall, room 114; among the weekly programs offered to everyone.
