Catholic Campus Ministry

Catholic campus ministry is the presence and ministry or service of the Roman Catholic Church on the campus of a school, college, or university. It may include the setting up of clubs, groups, and organizations, as well as the animating of liturgies, retreats, recollections, and the handling of Religion classes, workshops, and seminars. Some examples of Catholic campus ministries include Newman Club, Newman Apostolate, Cardinal Newman Society, and Catholic Student Association.

Cardinal Newman
