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.
An extensive program of volunteer service opportunities is provided through the Campus Ministry Office. The program enables Marywood students to participate in numerous community service and volunteer projects that assist them in learning about and valuing service. Student-initiated activities are encouraged. Volunteer service by students is intended to be communal, integrating, liberating and stimulating of energies and skills for the future.
