Campus Ministry

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 diverse and vibrant faith community for worship, prayer, reflection and fellowship.
  • Witness to the good news of Jesus Christ and a Catholic vision of wholeness which embraces diversity and solidarity.
  • Cultivate faith-filled leaders who have the capacity to transform their communities and their world.
  • 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 prayer and worship services, retreats, interfaith experiences, service projects and trips, social justice programs, and social activities. All faiths are welcome and encouraged to participate. The 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. Masses are celebrated in the Dorothy Marron University Community Chapel on Sunday evenings at 5:00 p.m. when classes are in session. Daily Masses or Communion Services are celebrated in the St. Stephen's Chapel (in the Mansion) Monday through Thursday at 8:45 am or 12:00 noon. Provisions are made for students to enter the RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults) to explore the possibility of being Baptized, receiving Confirmation or becoming Catholic. The office coordinates arrangements for the weddings of students and alumni desiring use of the chapel.
