Campus Ministry

Educating a mind without educating the heart is servicing a machine not building a person.
Professor Greg Craven, Vice-Chancellor

Campus Ministry is part of the Directorate for Identity and Mission. We are about animating the faith life on the ACU Campuses and our mission is to bring the distinctive Catholic identity and mission of ACU to life. We take the University mission to heart in all that we do; our ministry is created to encourage learning, to care for the whole person, and to foster the service of faith and promotion of the Gospel.

Grounded in the University's Catholic identity and the charisms of our foundation religious communities, Campus Ministry's outreach embraces people of all faith traditions.

Each campus has a team dedicated to the well-being of staff and students; meaning that we are here for you. Whether you're interested in a particular event or if you'd just like to talk to someone, our door is always open.
