Campus Ministry offers the opportunity for students to reflect on their lives of study and relationship within the context of their religious faith. Pastoral accompaniment focuses on specific issues of faith with which a person may be struggling. It offers ways to consider how one’s religious faith and tradition inform and guide those issues.
Spiritual Guidance is for those students who would like to talk confidentially with someone about spirituality and faith. Spiritual guidance is open to people of all religious traditions and background. It focuses on a person’s development in relationship with God and with themselves, around spiritual questions and issues.
