Grow in your faith.

Respond to God's call during your time here at Madonna University!

Campus Ministry is committed to serve, support, enrich, and foster the spiritual growth of our entire Madonna community. We provide opportunities to grow in faith and inspire one another - within our campus, the greater community, and throughout the world.

With programs like retreats, mission trips, community service engagement opportunities, and inspirational social gatherings, we challenge and empower all students, staff, and faculty to be disciples of God's love - growing in communion and living a life of service - thus caring for one another, for creation, and advancing peace and social justice for all creation.

We welcome persons of all faiths, while encouraging a spirit of ecumenism and interfaith relationships. We are rooted in the spirituality of our founding Felician Franciscan Sisters and of the traditions of the Roman Catholic Church, and thus embrace our Franciscan values.

Faith formation is an important journey throughout a student's college career!

We offer the following avenues to inspire and encourage them along their way:

Masses on Campus

Come deepen your faith and share in our Mass celebrations! All are welcome and encouraged to participate in our Liturgies here on campus. Explore your talents - be a reader, singer, or grace us with your musical talents!

Mass is celebrated on Sundays at 7 p.m., and Monday through Friday at 11:30 a.m. at the University Chapel. (Note: There are no Masses offered during the Summer months, mid-May to mid-August.)

Reflective Spaces

Madonna University offers quiet reflective spaces on our campus that can be used for your spiritual reflection at any time during the day. The following prayer rooms are available, in addition to our University Chapel and, of course, the beautiful path-lead grounds surrounding the University.

Retreat Programs

Campus Ministry supports students of all faiths on their spiritual journey, and encourages them to grow in their relationship with God and one another. Retreats are meaningful opportunities that offer students a break from their daily routine - providing moments of prayer, reflection, and activities to inspire their faith, have fun, and build lasting faith relationships with others. (Contact Campus Ministry for upcoming retreats.)

Groups - "Revive"

Connecting with others on our spiritual journey is an important stepping stone to personal growth!  "Revive" is our Campus Ministry group that encompasses this opportunity to cultivate the students holistic spiritual life. Through opportunities of encounter with others in faith - socially, spiritually, intellectually - we foster a support system that equally challenges and inspires us to become the people we are called to be in this world.  Sharing and reflecting on this journey together renews and uplifts not only ourselves and one another, but the whole community as well, bringing our Franciscan values to life.

Community Service

Living out our Felician Franciscan Values, and our call to serve others, we provide our students with opportunities to participate in community outreach throughout the year. Between on-campus and off-campus activities, we serve a multitude of organizations, especially those sponsored by the Felician Sisters and throughout the greater community.  In the words of St. Francis of Assisi... "Preach the Gospel at all times and, when necessary, use words."
