“Do not go outside yourself, but enter into yourself, for truth dwells in the interior self.” 

True Religion, 72, 102.

Inspired by the life and words of St. Augustine and other spiritual teachers, Campus Ministry welcomes you to encounter and deepen your sense of spirituality both through communal and personal practice and engagement. We provide opportunities for all members of our community to make room to see and hear the movement of the Divine within and around them.  Moments of retreat on and off campus, cultural celebrations with food and song, customized reflections and conversations on faith, meaning, and value, and regular opportunities to contemplate and pray are some of the paths we offer regularly.

On Campus Spiritual Practices

Centering Prayer

Centering Prayer is space for quiet, meditative prayer that cultivates a place of rest and attentive presence in the midst of our busy and distracted lives. We gather in a small group and sit quietly together. We invite you to join in person in Corr Chapel or  virtually on Zoom from 1 to 1:30 PM each Wednesday when classes are in session. All are welcome.  Contact Brian McCabe with any questions.

Spiritual Direction

Do you want to discover who God is for you in a deeper way? Spiritual direction is a time-tested tool that can help you do this. You can meet with a certified spiritual director once a month for one hour. During this session you would be guided to notice how God is moving in your life and how you can receive God's love and respond with integrity and generosity. For more information, please contact Brian McCabe.

Mindfulness is a practice of focusing on the present moment and developing an increased awareness of experiences as they happen. Research has shown that mindfulness can improve quality of life, work performance, mental health, and physical well-being. We invite you to join us for mindfulness on Mondays from 1 to 1:30 PM in HSB 200 (8/28, 9/11, 9/18) and the Devon Room of the Connelly Center (9/23 and 10/2) or on Zoom. All are welcome.

Jummah Prayer

All are welcome to attend Jummah, Muslim congregational prayer, held every Friday, 1:25 to 2 PM, usually in West Lounge. A sermon is offered by a local imam, followed by traditional prayer. Co-sponsored by the Muslim Students Association and Campus Ministry.
