Students with arms around eachother

About

Campus Ministry at Brescia provides spiritual direction to students, faculty and staff through a variety of opportunities. While the University is rooted in the Ursuline tradition, in the Catholic faith, Brescia welcomes all religions, beliefs and backgrounds by celebrating our unity in diversity. 

Students are encouraged to get involved making a difference through their own journey of faith and positively impacting the community as a whole.

We believe: 

  • In engaging a holistic development of the self
  • In developing relationships with each other
  • In understanding the relationships to which we're called
  • In sharing the gifts we have been given with others
  • In seeking truth in ecumenical and multi-faith dimensions with mutual respect
  • In helping others in their search for meaning as they discern life's direction
  • In caring for our Brescia community and the world

We value: 

  • Prayer & Meditation
  • Uniqueness of each Person // the dignity of every person //
  • Community
  • Worship
  • Discipleship
  • Contemplation & Action
