Campus Ministry

About Campus Ministry

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.

Events

Thomas Merton

Thomas Merton Prayer MY LORD GOD, I have no idea where I am going. I do not see the road ahead of me. I cannot know for certain where it will end. Nor do I really know myself, and the fact that I think that I am following your will does not mean that I am actually doing so. But I believe that the desire to please you does in fact please you. And I hope I have that desire in all that I am doing. I hope that I will never do anything apart from that desire. And I know that if I do this you will lead me by the right road though I may know nothing about it. Therefore will I trust you always though I may seem to be lost and in the shadow of death. I will not fear, for you are ever with me, and you will never leave me to face my perils alone.
