Still not finding a faith community?

If you are from a faith background for which there is currently no active group on campus, please contact Campus Ministry and we will work to help you form a group!

Weekly Rosary in Rodman Chapel
Rosary Beads

 Join a group of staff, faculty and students that meet each Tuesday at noon in Rodman Chapel to pray the rosary.  All are welcome.  Questions - contact Ann Buda

"Prayer Angels"

Prayer Angels is a new student-initiated prayer group on campus that has two goals: 1) to spread the awareness and power of prayer, 2) to break down religious divides. Anonymous prayer requests can be submitted, using this Wufoo form,  and each request will be distributed to the "prayer angels," who will personally pray for each intention. Anyone can submit a prayer request. Contact Ashley for more information.
Campus Crusade for Christ
Campus Crusade for Christ (Cru) meets every Wednesday at 7pm in the Campus Ministry conference room.   They are a non-Catholic organization, although Catholics and people of all religions are welcome to join us. Each meeting is very casual and fun. The group breaks down the Bible and then applies those basic lessons to their lives. 

Interested in learning more?  Come to their next meeting or contact Rachel Distler with questions.
