Campus Ministry


Diocesan Campus Ministry 
carries out the mission of the Church at various Catholic, private, and state colleges and universities in our six-county diocese. The office serves students, faculty, administration, and staff of these universities/colleges and their families, while extending beyond the limits of the campus to incorporate those who wish to share in this apostolate. Campus ministry serves these communities through providing opportunities for worship, service, spiritual formation, and education.

Currently this apostolate exists through Campus Ministry Centers serving Youngstown State University, Kent State University, Kent State University at Stark/Stark State College, Hiram College, University of Mount Union, and at the only Roman Catholic university in the diocese, Walsh University in Canton.
