Events and Programs
At Barry University, our interest extends beyond your academic and professional development; we are interested in you as a full person. This includes paying attention to your spiritual growth and the deepening of your relationship with God and neighbor. While firmly grounded in our Catholic tradition and Dominican heritage and expressive of our Mission and Core Commitments, we invite all members of the Barry Community into a closer relationship with God, self, neighbor and creation and to do so with openness to students, faculty and staff of all faith traditions. Whether you are Catholic or you belong to another faith tradition, the Campus Ministry staff can help you develop your spirituality and provide opportunities to celebrate your religious rituals and customs through our spirituality and faith formation programs, services and events.

Campus Ministry offers the opportunity for students to reflect on their lives of study and relationship within the context of their religious faith. Pastoral Counseling 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.
While neither of these services are substitutions for personal counseling around emotional and psychological issues, Campus Ministers are trained to listen, discern and pray with all students.
