Saint John's Campus Ministry

Welcome to the home of Saint John's Campus Ministry

Saint John's University Campus Ministry, rooted in Catholic tradition and Benedictine values, cultivates the faith life of the campus community "that in all things God may be glorified." (RB 57:9) While welcoming all students, we primarily focus on the spiritual and religious development of undergraduate men and the ministerial formation of graduate and undergraduate students.  We foster discipleship through worship, pastoral care, faith formation, service, and reflection in order to form students to understand, embrace and live out their faith "that they are better prepared to witness to the kingdom of truth in the world." (Empowered by the Spirit, USCCB)
