The mission of the ministry is to guide young adults especially Catholic young men and women in the call to holiness while they live out their life as college students. This call to holiness is accomplished by being present to the students through authentic spiritual friendship. We walk with students in their spiritual journey by inviting them through the study of the Scriptures, celebration of the Sacraments, Prayers and understanding and living out the Creed of the Catholic Church.
