- The Department of Campus Ministry encourages students, faculty, and staff of JCU to integrate personal faith into the academic and social environment of the University. We value the University’s commitment to academic pursuits, and welcome the opportunities we have to bring a Catholic and Ignatian faith perspective to bear on issues and trends that may surface in various disciplines and in a variety of social milieus. Among our statements of purpose are the following values:
- We embrace the Jesuit, Catholic intellectual tradition as an indispensable partner in the search for truth and wisdom.
- We promote the service of faith and the promotion of justice through education, advocacy, service and reflection.
- We foster the development of whole persons who become servant leaders in their local and global faith communities.
- We provide an open, caring, hospitable and collaborative atmosphere that supports the mission of the University.
- We establish a sense of community through vibrant worship, retreats, small faith communities, and immersion experiences.
- We recognize Eucharist as our primary liturgical experience, while also celebrating a diversity of faith and spiritual perspectives that seeks both wisdom and a fuller spiritual life.
- Faith and justice are at the heart of the programs, liturgies, prayer experiences, retreats, and service opportunities that Campus Ministry promotes. Students of all faiths and of no faith are encouraged to explore, deepen, and celebrate that which gives meaning to their lives. They are also called to action for the purpose of learning about and working for justice. Campus Ministry organizes faith/reflection-based immersion experiences in which students join members of the faculty and staff in both domestic and international locations. Together, members of the John Carroll community serve others, experience their cultures, and build lasting friendships. Recent trips include Nicaragua, Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras, Jamaica, Ecuador, Nepal, Haiti, West Virginia, Immokalee (Florida), New Orleans, and Louisville.
- Our retreat programs offer students the opportunity to reflect and to integrate their sense of faith with their daily lives. Many of the retreat programs are rooted in Ignatian spirituality, including the First-Year Retreat, Manresa Retreat, Leadership Retreat, Wilderness Retreat, and Eight-Day Silent Retreat, which is based on the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius.
- While retreats offer a focused time for prayer and reflection off-campus, our Carroll Faith Communities (small faith-sharing groups) offer students an ongoing way to integrate faith and their college experience. Groups are led by trained peers and consist of eight to ten students who meet for one hour weekly in the residence halls.
- Campus Ministry also serves the community in celebrating faith through liturgies and prayer services, including the Mass of the Holy Spirit, Parents Weekend Mass, Christmas Carroll Eve, and the Baccalaureate Mass. In addition to interfaith and other seasonal prayer services, eight Eucharistic liturgies are offered each week. Hundreds of students provide liturgical leadership by serving as lectors, Eucharistic ministers, Mass coordinators, sacristans, cantors, choir members, musicians, and acolytes.
- Currently, graduate student members of the Campus Ministry staff live in the residence halls, where they serve as Resident Ministers.
