ABOUT US

Welcome to Catholic Campus Ministry at the University of Cincinnati

We are the Catholic Campus Ministry to the students, faculty and staff of the University of Cincinnati.

Inspired by Pope Francis and using the US Bishops' document "Empowered by the Spirit," we strive to be an Catholic Community that seeks to be present to the needs of Catholic on campus.

We also seek to be a partner to the University of Cincinnati, We see our role as developing the students' spiritual well being, so as to educate the whole person.

We want to help our students understand their Catholic faith as they enter the workforce and the world.

We want to help them grow in their love for Christ and become active parishioners wherever they find themselves after graduation.

We exist to serve the needs of the Catholic community at the University of Cincinnati and we feel blessed to be able to walk with all whose paths we meet.

MISSION STATEMENT

We, the pastoral team at St. Monica-St. George Parish Newman Center, understand ourselves and our parish community to be missionaries to the U.C. academic community. Our mission is to inspire, challenge and support that community with the gospel message.

We carry out this mission by:

Empowering catholic members of the U.C. community with an adult appreciation of their faith tradition;

calling forth a spirit of welcome for all people, which respects and supports their uniqueness as children of God and by creating a community united both through social and spiritual activities;

gathering Catholics and interested persons for prayer, joyful and spirit-filled worship of God, educational programs, and spiritual formation;

creating a community of love which invites, nurtures and empowers those who participate to full personal development and sharing of their gifts in joyful service to building up the body of Christ;

encouraging a vision of the Church as a servant community dedicated to the works of justice, peace, and reverence for life, and providing opportunities for action on this vision;

facilitating the development of Christian leaders;

being an active presence on campus;

working with other campus ministry groups to better discern the needs of the academic community and promote the needs of the academic community and promote interfaith understanding and collaboration.
