Give to Campus Ministry

Weekday Mass

Beginning on October 4, Mass will be celebrated every Wednesday at noon. This is in addition to our Sunday evening Mass, which takes place in the chapel at 7:30. It is our hope and plan to have Mass celebrated on campus three times each week; however, we will begin slowly to see if there is interest in having this option available. Attendance at noon Masses on Wednesdays will help us to determine future scheduling of three Mass times.

Faculty/Staff Bible Study

A lunch time Bible study and prayer will be held on Tuesdays at noon beginning September 26.  If you are interested in attending please email Dr. Trish Arter at  If you are looking forward to a time of growth & support among faculty/staff please consider joining. All are welcome.

Operation Teach

Do you have an interest in teaching in Catholic schools? Operation TEACH is an innovative two-year post-graduate service program in Baltimore, MD.  Ms. Kristin Pinkowski, Assistant Director of the program, will have a table in the McGowan Center during the day on Wednesday, September 27. Please stop by to welcome her, ask questions, and get more information.
