While the entire St. Xavier staff ministers to students throughout the year in many ways, it is the task of the Campus Ministry Department to develop and coordinate certain specific student programs in which faculty & staff take leading roles. These programs involve a variety of experiences as seen through the lens of the Catholic Christian tradition and flavored by the Ignatian charism. These programs in turn allow our students to become aware that God is alive and active in their daily lives. Through prayer, liturgies, Sacraments, retreats, faith sharing, pastoral counseling and peer ministry, students grow in this faith both as individuals and as a community. St. Xavier builds on values learned within the family by encouraging students to develop life-long faith convictions and lasting relationships with God in and through God’s people.
