Find yourself in community.

We were created to live together in community — encouraging, challenging and celebrating one another as we discover what it means to love God and others more fully.

You’ll find endless opportunities to cultivate community and grow deeper in faith and friendship through Campus Ministry at Catholic University. You will discover that community is more than a weekly event. It’s family. It’s brothers and sisters who build each other up and accompany one another in the journey through life and faith. And it’s the friendships that last well beyond your college years.
