Liturgy and worship are at the heart of our Jesuit, Catholic tradition.
We welcome you to join us on Sundays and throughout the week to participate in worship experiences in the Chapel of Saint Joseph – Michael J. Smith, SJ, Memorial.
All are truly welcome in our community.
An essential part of Jesuit education is a spirituality which integrates one's faith with all aspects of daily living.
In order to grow in our lives we need to take time to step away from the busyness that happens all around us. Retreats at SJU are the perfect way to get away from campus for a weekend to reflect on our lives! Through retreats, activities engaged in, meals shared, thoughts and feelings treasured, participants are invited to embrace the Ignatian principles of "finding God in all things" and of being "men and women with and for others."
Service and Justice
What does "men and women with and for others" mean?
We invite all of our students to explore what it means to live a "faith that does justice." In Campus Ministry, we have various opportunities for students to live out the mission of SJU through service and social justice. From Weekly Service to APEX to Immersions Trips to Graduate Service, you'll find an service or a social opportunity for you!
Here you can find information about the Winter Immersion Programs to Ecuador, Mexico, El Salvador, Los Angeles, CA, El Paso, TX, and the Appalachian Experience during spring break.
Christian Life Communities
Christian Life Communities (CLCs) are intentional student groups built on the pillars of faith, community and mission. Participants desire to deepen their awareness of self, others and God. Groups meet weekly for conversation, reflection and prayer, taking pause together in sacred space.
For precautionary measures to protect those of our community who are most vulnerable to the virus, the celebration of Mass in the chapel has been suspended. In union with the Bishops of Pennsylvania, Archbishop Nelson Perez has dispensed the faithful of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia from the obligation to attend Sunday Mass during this time.
We are tentatively planning to resume regular Sunday masses on August 23. Until then, we invite you to join us for Mass virtually, which we broadcast LIVE on Sundays at 11AM.
Campus Ministry serves the mission of Saint Joseph's University by making visible the religious identity of the institution, and by nurturing the spiritual development of students, faculty, and staff.
In the context of Catholic higher education, Campus Ministry provides many opportunities to encounter God active in our world, to develop a conscience rooted in gospel values, and to address issues of faith and justice.
Challenged by a world in need of healing and motivated by Jesus Christ, Campus Ministry fosters a community of believers called to be "persons for and with others," and empowers leaders for Church and society, thus participating in the unfolding of God's plan for creation.
Our offices are located Wolfington Hall, next to the chapel.
Feel free to call us at 610-660-1030.
