Campus Ministry

  • The Office of Campus Ministry encourages members of JCU to integrate personal faith into the academic and social environment of the university. Graduate students at John Carroll University looking to grow in their faith and spirituality have numerous opportunities available through Campus Ministry.

Some of the opportunities available include:

  • A Christian Life Community (CLC) exclusively for graduate students. As part of this small faith community, members connect with other graduate students and share faith-filled conversation and friendship. Interested graduate students can simply show up on Sundays at 9 p.m. in the Lombardo Center, OMA (Multicultural) lounge. For graduate students not of the Christian faith and tradition who are also interested in sharing their faith on campus, there are a number of opportunities.
  • For those faith traditions that do not have an active faith community, you are invited to form your own faith community at JCU.
  • Graduate students also have the opportunity to join and participate in an immersion experience. Immersion experiences are integral to a Jesuit Catholic education which challenges students to engage the realities of the world while reflecting on the values of human dignity and respect for the earth.
  • Additionally, all graduate students are invited to register and attend the 8-Day Silent Retreat. This individually directed retreat is a great opportunity for quality reflection and prayer.
  • Finally, JCU offers Liturgy services which provide the opportunity for students to live their faith more deeply. Graduate students are welcome to participate in JCU liturgies as members of the choir, lectors, and Eucharistic ministers.

Campus Safety Services
