Campus Ministry

create a rich, spiritual environment on campus

Campus Ministry at Ancilla College

The mission of campus ministry is to “create a rich spiritual environment” on campus. We do this through a variety of ways. We offer things like spiritual direction and spiritual counseling. We plan talks and events that open spiritual conversations. As well, we provide ways to develop the community through fun activities, small groups, and other means.

Core Values

  • Openness to the Spirit
  • Community
  • Simplicity
  • Dignity and Respect for All

We are located in Room 110.

Snacks and drinks are available!
