Peer Ministry

Each year, Campus Ministry recruits, trains and offers ongoing spiritual formation for undergraduate residential students who will provide a ministerial presence in their residence halls and throughout campus. 

Peer ministers reach out to all students to help them discover, recognize and celebrate God’s presence. They find new, creative ways to build community and support their neighbors as they search together. They give particular attention to students who may be marginalized for any reason.

Learn about opportunities and the Peer Ministers who facilitate them below. Be sure to check back for updates throughout the year.

Peer Ministers coordinate these speaker series programs which alternate on a monthly basis. The goals of both are to create honest, comfortable spaces where students can learn, be inspired, and challenged by the stories, ideas, and beliefs by speakers. Peer Minister hope to these events can serve as ways for students to connect with each other and form friendships.

Peer Ministers assist in coordinating and promoting opportunities to learn and engage with one another across religious traditions and backgrounds. Learn about upcoming events here.

Peer Ministers facilitate small groups where members talk about the everyday challenges of student life, including relationships, decision making, faith and spirituality. These groups provide a trusted space for honest conversation. Discover that we all share similar questions and concerns. Learn more or find a small group.

Peer Ministers explore and express their faith through making and sharing sacred music. This group of students meet weekly to practice music and share their faith with one another. They also provide music for at evenings of praise and worship and Residence Hall liturgies.

Peer Ministers coordinate monthly liturgies in various residence halls on campus.  They work RAs, Campus Ministers and Augustinian presiders to plan, promote and execute these masses in informal, comfortable spaces. Each mass is followed by refreshments and offers a space for conversation, reflection and connection.
