Graduate & Professional Student Activities

The mission of the Office of Campus Ministry is to assist the members of the CUA community in their growth as individuals and as a community so they may be more fully able to celebrate and live the message of the Gospel. The pastoral and student staff exercises their ministry in a variety of ways: community prayer, liturgy, forming days of reflection and other opportunities to gather as a community and reflect on God's presence in the world.
