Develop spiritually with USM campus ministry

“Through service, our hope is that Saint Mary students are led to the unselfish lives that make a difference in our global society. We believe instilling a commitment to service will result in our graduates leading much more fulfilled lives.”

Sister Diane Steele, University President and Saint Mary Graduate


Who Are We

Rooted in the Catholic tradition and inspired by the spirituality and service of the Sisters of Charity of Leavenworth, USM Campus Ministry is committed to cultivating the faith of all Saint Mary students—no matter their denomination.

Campus Ministry fosters personal spiritual growth, encourages participation in the sacraments and Mass, and provides daily opportunities for Saint Mary students to develop their beliefs and lifelong faith.

Campus Ministry is not a club or an interest group—rather, a resource of support for the spiritual life that already exists in our Saint Mary family.

In addition to the service opportunities integrated in the classroom at USM, Campus Ministry provides students a chance to regularly connect with the Leavenworth community through service.

We also coordinate alternative fall and spring break trips—serving in New Orleans, Appalachia, Denver, and more.

Campus Ministry works with student leaders and organizations, like USM’s Rotaract Club, Hunger Awareness Team, and Theology Club on prayer services, retreats, service projects, and some of the best campus-wide events all year.

And with the Sisters of Charity of Leavenworth Mother House next door, we love connecting with the sisters and celebrating our heritage, too.
