Since I've come to know many of the people who are involved in Campus Ministry, it has become much like a family to me. There are people I know I can talk to, and I can meet new people. Being involved in Campus Ministry – for me – is my way of getting out, meeting new people, learning new things, and helping others in the community. I enjoy helping others, and Campus Ministry gives me a way to do just that. - Nick (Sophomore, History)
To me it has been a safe place away from home where people (Laurie, Sisters Barb & Ann Carmen and Tim) all care about us and what is going on! It gets us involved in a comfortable atmosphere. It’s a place to go if you have a problem and people care. I don’t know what I would have done my first year without Campus Ministry. - Kristin (Sophomore, Pre-Nursing) Campus Ministry means always having a place to belong and to feel welcome at Lourdes. Being in Campus Ministry has been the bomb.com - Hanna (Sophomore, Pre-Nursing) To me, Campus Ministry was an opportunity to get involved in the community of Lourdes and Sylvania Through Campus Ministry I have met many amazing people and made lifelong friends. - Sarah (Sophomore, Pre-Nursing)
