Pastoral Care

Graduate students are warmly invited to be part of any and all of Campus Ministry’s offerings. Some opportunities are particularly well-suited for graduate student needs; a list of these opportunities follows below.

Retreats

Two retreats which regularly draw graduate students are the Silent Directed Retreat, a 5-day retreat offered the week before second semester, and the Lenten Retreat in Daily Life, a 6-week, on-campus retreat focused on daily prayer and weekly spiritual direction.

Camino Small Groups

These small faith groups, based on the model of Christian Life Communities (CLCs), meet weekly and provide an opportunity to live “magis” in community with others. To join a group during the fall semester, sign up online by Monday, September 19. For more information, contact Steve Blaha, Assistant Director of Campus Ministry.

Sacramental Preparation

A rich sacramental life is one element of the dynamic faith environment on campus. Campus Ministry offers preparation and opportunities for students interested in experiencing the risen Lord through one of the sacraments.
