Campus Ministry

About Campus Minsitry

Campus Ministry nourishes the development of religious faith and practice at Villanova University. While affirming the individual, Campus Ministry seeks to empower the community to proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Campus Ministry respects the religious traditions of the many while expressing the identity and mission of a Catholic University.

Reflecting traditions of Roman Catholic and Augustinian spirituality, Campus Ministry engages in every aspect of University life through prayer, liturgy, community service, and pastoral care. Campus Ministry encourages all to integrate personal faith into the academic and social environment of the University. Campus Ministry promotes the Augustinian ideal of an intellectual community seeking both wisdom and a fuller spiritual life.

Campus Ministry fosters the development of leadership in service to the poor and education for justice. Campus Ministry programs reflect the model of St. Thomas of Villanova who dedicated his life in service to the poor. Campus Ministry articulates and strengthens the commitment of the University to both the Gospel and the world.

In the spirit of St. Augustine who urged his followers to search for God together, consider next Sunday's Gospel which tells the story of John the Baptist. His actions draw the attention of religious leaders who send messengers to ask for his testimony. The passage concludes with John telling the Pharisees that the one for whom they are looking is already among them, but unrecognized. John’s testimony arises from his openness to the presence of God in his midst. He has been enabled to see hidden within his very surroundings what others have not yet seen. Perhaps the testimony of John invites us to recognize that the One we seek is already among as well. Could Christ be hidden in our midst? Spirit of God, open our eyes that we might see, and as we gain new sight, teach us to rejoice.
