Campus Ministry

Campus Ministry students and Benedictines

Our Active Campus Ministry program

The heart and soul of Saint Vincent College is a fervent love of Christ. Having established the college, the monks of Saint Vincent Archabbey have entrusted the relationship of its students to Campus Ministry for the glory of God and their benefit. This central reality of campus life is designed to nurture and foster the spiritual, social, intellectual, and affective lives of each and every student on campus. Campus ministry has something to offer every student, regardless of faith tradition because all are welcome to deepen their relationship with Jesus and one another. Our Campus Ministers are also available to talk to students for personal guidance during those times we all have when we need someone to rely on.

Liturgy and Worship, to love them

Liturgy = participation of the people of God in the work of God (CCC 1069). We give praise back to our redeemer and Savior through our worship in all of its forms. We are made from and by Love, and offer Love back to its source, who is God. Saint Vincent Campus Ministry provides the following opportunities in Celebration of Mass, Confessions, Adoration, praise and worship opportunities, Retreats, and more.

Formation and Study, to feed them

Encountering Love, we seek nourishment and sustained growth in our faith. Once we encounter the Lord, we desire Him more and more! Our curiosity grows as we seek and find answers slowly and steadily, we find our nourishment in Christ. In Campus Ministry we seek to help provide opportunities for that nourishment. Saint Vincent Campus Ministry provides the following opportunities in Formation and Study: Bible studies, men’s and women’s ministry, men’s and women’s small groups, Theology on Tap, and more.

Evangelization and Outreach, to want them around

Encountering Christ in a real and intimate way, we soon realize the joy we have must be shared with others and brought forward. The call, the need, the necessity to evangelize and spread the good news flows from the Love and nourishment we have been enlivened by the faith.

We build up community, and realize that we who have been loved and nourished want to love and nourish others – we really do want you around and involved.

Saint Vincent Campus Ministry provides the following opportunities in Evangelization and Outreach: FOP, High School Retreats, Dorm Blessings, Sports Friendship Day, Service Projects, Pilgrimages, International Trips, and more. Campus Ministry serves the students based on Scripture and the Holy Rule of St. Benedict.

  • Service

    Service Provides Rewarding Experiences

    Saint Vincent students embody Christian charity in their gifts of time and talents for those in need due to hunger, poverty, natural disasters or other personal challenges. Students annually organize Sports Friendship Day for individuals who are differently abled, visit nursing homes, conduct blood drives, feed the hungry, go on mission trips to Alaska, Brazil and Taiwan, as well as a local service project over fall break. Our students describe these opportunities as both beneficial to others as well as being personally rewarding.


  • Education

    Benedictine Leadership Studies

    BLS is a unique leadership program at Saint Vincent College rooted in the teachings of the Catholic Church and in Benedictine spirituality of Saint Benedict. This four-year formation program takes place through unique academic coursework, retreat workshops, service projects, mentorship, and a capstone trip to Rome during spring break of their senior year. BLS works closely with Campus Ministry, as BLS students are encouraged to assist Campus Ministry in promoting a Benedictine lifestyle which is liturgically rooted and pro-life culture on campus. In addition, BLS students serve in leadership roles in Campus Ministry throughout their four years at Saint Vincent. For further information please contact: Dr. Michael P. Krom, Ph.D., Professor and Chair of the Philosophy Department.
