Faith Communities

Become a Lay Marianist

Lay Marianists are individuals who aren’t Brothers, Priests or Sisters who are attracted to the Marianist spirit and want to live their lives according to those values. The process of becoming a Lay Marianist is a simple one that involves weekly formation gatherings with other students to deepen your understanding of the Marianist values before making a one-year commitment as a Lay Marianist.

Join a Faith-Sharing Community

Our faith-sharing communities are small groupings of students who come together to reflect and share on various topics of faith. These small communities are lead by students who will help facilitate the conversation for sharing. These gatherings will consist with some elements you would find with a bible study group, but the purpose of the community is to deepen and share your faith with one another.

What They Are Saying About Us

Thoughts from our Students

Campus Ministry guided me to incorporate prayer back into my life and to reach out to the community.

Campus Ministry has helped me spread the Marianist Family Spirit, be open to others and has helped me strengthen my faith.

I feel Campus Ministry embodies the Marianist values of ‘ohana spirit along with all the other values we hold dear at Chaminade University.

In Campus Ministry I learned to be more open about myself and never to give up on my dreams, to serve others and to be there for one another.

Our Mission Statement

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