About Campus Ministry

At Ancilla College Campus Ministry, a department of Mission Integration, we are the pastoral expression of the Catholic Higher Education mission; rooted and zeal filled, and in the spirit of Ex Corde Ecclesiae, our inspirations are derived from our Foundress Blessed Katherine Kasper.

We are passionate ministers who strive to be progressive, holistic and student-centered to further foster social, spiritual and intellectual dialogue in the ecumenical tradition of the Poor Handmaids of Jesus Christ.

The College’s spiritual life programs encourage students to find and articulate their own spiritual center, and help them to grow in that center. Ancilla faculty and staff work with students to help them integrate academics and spirituality into their daily lives. There are many opportunities for students to participate in campus spiritual life.
