St. Paul's College Campus Ministry

Welcome to St. Paul's College Campus Ministry! We provide a Roman Catholic presence at the U of M, and we are home to the local Canadian Catholic Students’ Association. Our programs are open to everyone, and they focus on spiritual development, outreach, and service learning.

We are committed to stewardship by nurturing our own faith formation and that of others. Our active campus ministry team has planned a full schedule of events throughout the year (with a break for vacation in July). Volunteers are encouraged to assist with organizing and participating in various activities.

Please see our calendar of events for more information on upcoming programs and activities.

 


 

An update from Campus Ministry..

As you have heard, the provincial government has placed stricter restrictions on the province beginning today.  One of these restrictions is that all churches and places of worship must close.
Unfortunately, that means that we are not able to open our doors Sunday and Wednesday for Mass. However, keeping within the governments restrictions and with the archdioceses rules, we will continue to livestream our masses on the Facebook page.
We will be sure to announce when we can celebrate the sacraments together again. We will continue to provide updates right here and on the College’s website.
Please join us in our prayers that an effective and safe vaccine may be developed and for an end to this pandemic which affects us all as a human race.
Blessings of peace,
Campus Ministry
