Program mission statement
The Campus Ministry at Saint Martin’s University is committed to
accompanying those in our community on their journey of faith. Founded on
and continually framed by the rich tradition of Catholic Benedictine
spirituality, campus ministry shares in the University’s commitment to honor
the sacredness of all. We provide opportunities for students, and all Saint
Martin’s communities to make a positive difference in their lives and the
lives of others through the intersection of faith, reason, service and
We are the center point where students develop in consciousness and
conscience so that they may better comprehend who they are and how they
engage in community.
We help students develop a consciousness of their faith life and who
their authentic selves are and form their conscience to be more just people.
