Thank you for your support
Campus Ministry provides the opportunity for students to create lasting friendships, find the freedom to pursue their faith, and come to know the full love of God and what it means to be His sons and daughters.
These opportunities are found through retreats, outreach programs, small group gatherings, fellowship events, weekly service projects, mission trips, speaker series and more — and they are made possible by the continued generosity of those who support Campus Ministry.
If you are interested in supporting the overall mission and programs provided by the Office of Campus Ministry, you can do so in the following ways:
Prayer is a powerful tool. We ask that you pray for the students, staff, and faculty at Catholic University — that they would be encouraged by the love of God, and that their hearts would be opened to His teachings. We also ask that you pray for the Campus Ministry team as we encourage and guide members of The Catholic University community in their faith journey.

Caldwell Chapel Restoration Initiative
Caldwell Chapel is the University’s original sacred space. It is located in Caldwell Hall, the first building erected as part of the Catholic University campus, the cornerstone of which was laid in 1888. While the building is named for Mary Gwendoline Caldwell, who provided the initial donation toward the creation of the University, the chapel’s existence is due to her sister, Mary Elizabeth “Lina” Caldwell. Lina made a gift to fund the construction of what was originally called St. Paul’s Chapel, also in 1888, and she was later married there.
This chapel is also the foundation of spiritual life at Catholic University. Generations of students have explored and deepened their faith there, and countless Catholic University sweethearts have chosen it as the location to celebrate their own marriages.
In order to ensure that it remains open and accessible for generations of Cardinals to come, we need to renovate Caldwell Chapel, while also preserving all of its historical and architectural significance. Heating and cooling systems will make it practical for use year-round, and the addition of an elevator will make it accessible for all who wish to visit. Many parts of the chapel will also receive much-needed repairs, including the organ, pews, choir loft, wood floors, sacristy, and altars.
