What is Catholic Campus Ministry (CCM)?
Who We Are
We are Catholic Christians, coming together to build our faith individually and as a community so that we can be the light of Christ that we are meant to be, and in our own special and unique way, make this world a better place.
We are “empowered by the Spirit” so that we can “live what we believe.”
What We Do
First and foremost we build community. We are accepting of all who choose to join us, whether or not they are Catholic. Here are a few examples of the things we do. Also visit our calendar of events for upcoming events you may be interested in.
- We have weekly meetings on Tuesday evenings where we discuss and debate topics of faith from a Catholic perspective, i.e. death, prayer, and forgiveness.
- We have a monthly prayer service and supper with the pastor of our local parish, St. Matthew’s of Holy Trinity Parish.
- We go hiking, watch movies, discuss books, and share meals.
- We serve our community both on and off campus: Thanksgiving food baskets, Habitat for Humanity, Food for Finals, Meals for Many, and Music Ministry at Holy Trinity Parish, to name a few.
- We also collaborate with other departments and services on campus and participate in community service projects like Hunger & Homelessness Week and social justice trips.
Why We Love CCM
“The welcoming atmosphere and the laughs we share at every meeting.”
“It is a great way to embrace and share my faith with other people who have similar beliefs.”
“The monthly dinners and the bowling nights have been ways for me to make friends and de-stress from classes.”
“CCM is helping me feel closer to God.”
“In what seemed to be a rather tough time, CCM has brought me together with wonderful people, which really helped me get by. I do love and am grateful for this.”
“I love being with others who share a common bond with me. The ability to not be judged for being the religion that I am.”
“I love the sense of community that is within the CCM.”
“CCM has introduced me to many great people. What I’ve experienced with them will remain the highlights of my college memories.”
