Campus Ministry and Social Action seeks to serve students of all religious traditions by providing prayer and worship experiences for students from the Roman Catholic tradition and other faith traditions.


The Holy Sacrifice of the Mass is an integral symbol of the Catholic, Lasallian community that exists on our campus.   Although Mass is not offered everyday, members of the community are also welcome to attend the Eucharist at our local parish, St. John - Visitation Church.  There are many other opportunities on campus for evangelization, catechesis, and formation at prayer services, Scripture Study, RCIA classes, various student ministries, community service, Lasallian Collegians, lectures, spiritual direction, retreats, and clubs.
