About Campus Ministry

The department of Campus Ministry serves the entire Lourdes community by calling forth the gifts and talents of students, administration, faculty, staff, and alumni. The interaction of our diverse faith traditions enriches campus life. Our goal is to help create a community whose faith is alive, informed, and active. Our framework is one of Franciscan values, traditions, and spirit.

Grow in your relationship with God, with yourself, and with others through:

  • Spiritual and Social LINKS that include weekly liturgies, Scripture study groups, retreats, ice cream socials, and Walks with Francis (learn about St. Francis while making a pilgrimage on campus).
  • Outreach Ministry LINKs that reflect our support of Sylvania Area Family Services, Helping Hands of St. Louis, Bethany House, Habitat for Humanity, and other national and local causes.
  • Reading the Campus Ministry LINK, weekly emails that contain current information on all related activities. You can find additional reflection resources in the Campus Ministry display in the MAH Planetarium Lobby
  • Joining L.I.N.K. (Linking Interest, Need, and Knowledge) a student organization that works with Campus Ministry to help plan spiritual, social, and service oriented activities that link other students to the community.
