Inspired by the mission of the Brothers of Christian Instruction, Campus Ministry exists to build an open and vibrant Christian community that is grounded in the rich tradition and sacramental life of the Church and committed to evangelization, prayer, study, teaching and service. We strive to continue the work of the Brothers of Christian Instruction and their mission to “make Jesus Christ better known, loved and served.” Students from any and every religious background are highly encouraged to participate in one of our many retreats, small group communities, men’s and women’s fellowships, service opportunities, nights of worship or mission trips. We extend a special welcome to graduate and commuter students, as well as students with no faith background at all. Campus Ministry works closely with the University Chaplain, the Theology Department and various student-led organizations to provide opportunities of ongoing faith formation to the Walsh University community.

You will find our offices all over campus: Connector 204, Menard/Betzler 243 and Lemmon 103. In addition, pay a visit to one of our beautiful chapels. The Connector chapel (located in the connector area of the residence halls), the St. Teresa of Calcutta chapel (located in the Global Learning Center) and the Our Lady of Perpetual Help chapel are open many times throughout the week and available to ALL students (not just Catholics) for prayer, reflection and rest. Let us be a home away from home!

Campus Ministry's Learning Objectives

  • Students will be able to express and share the value of faith fostered in the Catholic learning community by growing in knowledge and challenging others through word and witness.
  • Students will learn and develop effective leadership skills grounded in the Gospel value of service.
  • Students will be able to understand local and global issues, demonstrate an understanding and appreciation of diversity in the light of faith, and scrutinize the signs of the times by interpreting them in light of the Gospel.
  • Students will exercise their civic responsibility through the lens of peace and justice. Students will be able to develop a transformative prayer life that will form and inform their praxis as servant leaders and aspiring professionals.
