SEEK | PRAY | GROW
As a faith based university rooted in the Catholic tradition, Holy Names University empowers Campus Ministry to provide a pastoral presence for HNU students, faculty and staff that promotes spiritual growth and care for others through liturgy, service, retreats, faith formation and interfaith services. Campus Ministry creates an atmosphere of reflection, through events and services, which enables all community members to grow in and deepen their own spiritual journey.

Student Leadership – Putting Your Faith Into Action!
Campus Ministry is a collaborative effort that encourages student participation. We welcome you to come join us as a member of FIAT-Faith in Action Together, our student leadership club that engages students in meaningful ways to reach out and support their peers in prayer and conversation. The Liturgy and Worship Team creates inviting and meaningful campus liturgies, and other forms of prayer, worship, and ritual, including interfaith moments of prayer and meditation.
The Outreach and Hospitality Team creates an atmosphere of welcome and hospitality for students, staff and faculty. This team creates spaces of safety, hospitality and nourishment through programs and outreach throughout campus. This group collaborates in fostering an ongoing community of acceptance for all at HNU.
The Student Leadership and Small Group Facilitation Team collaborates in supporting and providing a variety of opportunities to grow communities of service, prayer and justice throughout the Holy Names campus.
