Campus Ministry

The Office of Campus Ministry focuses on the spiritual formation of the students. Catholic tradition, the counsels of St. Angela Merici, foundress of the Ursuline order, and the Ursuline philosophy of Serviam (“I will serve”) are the guideposts of the ministry. The primary focus of the office is to challenge and nourish the spiritual life of every student through promotion of active participation in daily school prayer, in Eucharistic Liturgies (Masses), prayer services, student service to the broader community (including local, national, and global) and to the school community, involvement in class retreats, and service of the peer ministers to the school community.

Service to Others

Starting with service projects initiated both inside and outside of school, the spirit of Serviam gives rise to a lifelong dedication to serving those in need. Students of all ages learn the importance of helping others. Ursuline’s service programs provide enriching opportunities to integrate and expand the student’s understanding of herself in relation to God, her community, and the world.

Ursuline philosophy of Serviam

I will serve
Each year, Ursuline students of all ages honor St. Angela on her feast day by volunteering at non-profit organizations around the city and by helping out around campus.
