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 in which Jesus tells the parables of the two sons to the chief priests and elders. One son initially refuses to do what his father asks but later changes his mind and obeys. The second son initially agrees but does not follow through. Jesus concludes the parable by saying that tax collectors and prostitutes came to believe, but the religious leaders did not, nor did they later change their minds upon seeing the repentance of others. Isn’t it true that obedience to God’s desire in our lives can be so much more difficult for those of us who have learned to see ourselves as leaders in some way?  How do we receive the humility to hear and obey God’s word to us?
