Ancilla College Campus Ministry is a department of Mission Integration. Our inspirations are derived from our Foundress Blessed Katherine Kasper; rooted and zeal filled we are the pastoral expression of the Catholic Higher Education mission. 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.

Ancilla eSports club is where students that are passionate about eSports (gaming), whether competitive or casual, can gather together, discuss, socialize and play. The Ancilla eSports Club would like to offer the club members opportunities to learn about different games, improve their skills in gaming, game with other students within the college and eventually compete in some outside tournaments. Competitive video gaming has quickly risen to the ranks of a “real sport”.
