The Office of Campus Ministry is established to provide support for campus ministry programs at our colleges and universities in the Diocese.  In addition to financial aid, we offer on site assistance to help local parishes embrace the gifts and challenges of campus ministry. The Diocese offers a college retreat every spring to bring together Catholic college students for a weekend of prayer and reflection.  .
