The Office of Campus Ministry is located on the first floor of Mercy Hall. The office supports the spiritual growth of all members of the university community. Our vision of ministry calls us to:
- Gather a vibrant faith community for worship, prayer, and reflection.
- Celebrate the Catholic Christian faith of our sponsors, the Sisters of Mercy.
- Cultivate faith-filled leaders who have the capacity to change the world for the better.
- Animate the GCU community to live our Mercy identity through compassionate service and advocacy of justice.
Campus ministry’s staff is dedicated to serving the entire academic community including students, faculty, and staff as well as GCU offices, departments, and other campus organizations. The office collaboratively plans and coordinates a wide range of spiritual programs such as retreats, interfaith experiences, service projects, social justice programs, and social activities. All faiths are welcome and encouraged to participate. The chaplain and campus ministers are available to confidentially discuss personal, religious, and moral concerns.
The Office of Campus Ministry also provides for the sacramental life of the community. Mass is celebrated Monday through Thursday at 12:00 pm and on Sunday evenings at 5:00 pm when classes are in session. Provision is made for the Sacrament of Reconciliation, the RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults), and Confirmation. The office coordinates arrangements for the weddings of students and alumni desiring use of the chapel.
