The Department of Campus Ministry seeks to provide students, faculty and staff opportunities for the development of their faith, and celebration of religious practices. Grounded in the teachings of the Second Vatican Council and Jesus’ call to love God and love neighbor, the Campus Ministry staff seeks to provide a presence and be a resource for the Barry University community and members of all faiths and religions. We offer opportunities for individual and communal prayer, spiritual formation, retreats, worship and sacramental celebrations, community service and reflection. All students are encouraged to seek a fitting response to the presence of God in their lives while fulfilling their academic pursuits.
Campus Ministry oversees the sacramental life of the community by offering daily and Sunday Masses, the RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults), and opportunities for communal penance services. The Sacrament of Reconciliation (Confession) is available Wednesday 4 – 5 p.m. and on an individual basis by appointment with the University Chaplain. All Masses are held in Cor Jesu Chapel. For information on the Sacraments of Baptism and Matrimony, please contact the University Chaplain for a description of the Campus Ministry policy and the Archdiocese of Miami guidelines. A listing of Worship Services (Ecumenical and Interfaith) in the Miami area is available in the Campus Ministry Office.
The Campus Ministry staff is committed to meeting the faith, religious and spiritual needs of all students. Non-Catholic students are encouraged to meet with Campus Ministry staff about their needs. The Department of Campus Ministry serves as an advocate in meeting those needs (e.g. bible study, prayer space, religious celebrations and holy days). For non-Christian students, a prayer space is available in the Monsignor William Barry Memorial Library, Room 310. In collaboration with the Dean of Students and the Vice-President for Student Affairs, the Office of Campus Ministry promotes a non-proselytization policy.
