Welcome to Campus Ministry

The Campus Ministry office at Saint Martin’s University is committed to providing members of our university community with opportunities to be engaged in programs and activities that are rooted in our core values of faith, reason and service. Together with our monastic community, our Benedictine Institute and our service immersion programs, the Campus Ministry office is dedicated to promoting and inculcating our Catholic identity in the context of Benedictine spirituality. Members of our community from all religions and religious backgrounds are invited and encouraged to participate in all that we do.
