Welcome To Campus Ministry

Welcome To Campus Ministry

Our Mission and Values

Campus Ministry prepares and forms students to embody faith and justice through their lives by providing opportunities for spiritual growth, discernment, prayer, and community engagement.

Our Commitment to the Students 

We are committed to educating the whole person and being with students on their exploration at the intersections of faith, justice, and community. We are committed to hospitality and serving all students. We welcome the experiences, tensions, and gifts of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer persons in the Seattle University Community. We honor our diversity as people made in the image and likeness of God by offering hospitality to all.  Whatever your background or identity, whatever questions you may be exploring in your life; you have a place in Campus Ministry.

We Aim To:

  • Care for students by engaging with them in one-to-one relationship
  • Invite students into community
  • Foster a culture of prayer, faith, and discernment and invites students to contemplate their relationship to the transcendent
  • Expand students’ awareness of justice and faith perspectives
  • Call and form students into authentic leadership
  • Provide sacramental ministry to the Seattle University community
  • Promote the Catholic, Jesuit character of the University

We provide many opportunities for you to grow spiritually, learn more about yourself, share your gifts and talents, encounter and dialogue across difference, and build community with others. In addition to a fun, educational, and engaging Catholic ministry, there are opportunities for students from all faith or spiritual backgrounds: Christians, Muslims, Jews, Hindus, Buddhists, Atheists, those who identify as spiritual but not religious, and those questioning.

A More Just and Humane World

Campus Ministry celebrates the gifts and talents of all our students and encourages each of you to use these talents in a way that builds up the communities to which you belong on campus and in the world.

The Campus Ministry Team is here to support and encourage you as we all join in asking life’s big questions together. We are here to share the joyful and challenging moments of life, and be conversation partners with you as you live your values on campus and beyond. We sincerely hope that you will engage your academic, social, and spiritual experience to its fullest. Come visit us in the Maguire Center for Campus Ministry on the first floor of the Student Center.
