Rooted in the ministry of the universal Church and in harmony with the local Bishop and faith community, Campus Ministry provides the Catholic presence on the Cal Poly, Cuesta, Cabrillo College, University of California at Santa Cruz, and California State University of Monterey Bay campuses. Proclaiming the Kingdom, the ministry challenges the campus communities to live the Good News encouraging a sense of community responsibility through the ministry of service.
Campus Ministry offers support and presence to persons in crisis and provides means for personal growth and self-development as well as for the spiritual needs of the whole community in higher education.
Offering programs that are responsive to the changing needs of students, faculty, and staff, Campus Ministry trains future leaders of the church. Teaching and learning from one another and with a collegial style of ministry and leadership, a shared vision is created stabilizing the ministry. The celebrating Christian community evolves making our Campus Ministry Center a place of hospitality, fellowship, socialization and recreation.
