What They Are Saying About Us

Thoughts from our Students

During my time with Campus Ministry, I have learned to be more welcoming and more understanding of my fellow peers.

Campus Ministry allowed me to be a minister of God’s word by accepting what I have to offer. Campus Ministry is an environment of faith and a great place to be in.

After graduating from Chaminade University in the Fall of 2014, I believe I have learned how to build communities during my time with Campus Ministry.

Campus Ministry is a safe haven for me to express myself and not feel like I’ll be judged by my peers because I know that they will love me no matter what.

Our Mission Statement

Our mission is to intensify our Catholic and Marianist identity across the campus community.
