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, please consider the following reflection. Responding to the Pharisees question of “which commandment in the law is the greatest, Jesus sets forth what appears to be two commandments, but in reality they are both essential parts of the single commandment TO LOVE. Jesus message is clear: to love God is to love other people. They are inseparable. God, ourselves, and others form the triad that is the expression of love. The Exodus reading teaches us that love is expressed in actions, such as compassion, mercy, kindness and forgiveness. If our hearts are open we are freed to love.
