Campus Ministry

Inspired by the Gospel mandate of compassionate service to others and informed by the charism of the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur of the wonder of God's goodness, Campus Ministry seeks to help students of all faiths find their purpose and meaning in life.

We invite students to participate in multiple meaningful experiences ranging from a variety of volunteer programs, interfaith prayer services, daily and weekend Catholic Mass, retreats, spiritual direction, religiously themed conferences and lectures, the Catholics of the Fenway group and RCIA programming. These opportunities enhance students' religious knowledge, as well as welcoming those who are interested in becoming Catholic. 

We offer leadership training in retreat work, lectoring, and serving as Eucharistic Ministers during the Mass as well as Mass coordinators. Our choir director welcomes students, faculty and staff of all faiths to join the Emmanuel College choir as singers and instrumentalists. Campus Ministry works closely with the offices of Mission Identity and Service Learning, sharing volunteer opportunities and offering joint programming throughout the year. Campus Ministry shares sponsorship of various school events with other campus departments as well.
