Campus Ministry at Villa Maria College encourages and promotes the spiritual growth of all students, faculty and staff.

Campus Ministry

Grow In Your Faith

We provide programs and opportunities to help you grow in your faith and connect to others through service and reflection. The Campus Ministry office is also here to serve as a source of counsel to those of different faiths. Recognizing that Villa Maria College is a diverse campus with people of different religious backgrounds, we encourage all people to pursue their own spiritual development. Campus Ministry is fundamentally committed to being welcoming and hospitable to all people in our events, worship services, and programming.

In addition to the spiritual and religious aspects of Campus Ministry, there is a great emphasis placed on peace and justice. The College is a member of the national peace organization – Pax Christi – and of the Western New York Peace Center.
