Campus Ministry serves the mission of the University by promoting a faith community among faculty, staff and students and by providing opportunities for liturgical worship, prayer experiences, spiritual direction, moral development, community service and social justice activities. All activities are planned, organized and administered by students under the mentorship of the Campus Ministry staff. Students are thus prepared to assume leadership roles in both church and society. All members of the community, regardless of denomination, are invited to participate in Campus Ministry activities and to offer suggestions about ways in which Campus Ministry can best serve their needs.
Collegiate Volunteers, a program of volunteer service opportunities in the Campus Ministry Center, is provided in collaboration with the University of Scranton. Through this program, Marywood students participate in numerous community service and volunteer projects that assist them learn about and value service. Students are placed according to their interests and in response to community needs. Student-initiated activities also are encouraged. Volunteer service by students from each university is intended to be communal, integrating, liberating and stimulating of energies and skills for the future.
