B.A.S.I.C (Brothers and Sisters in Christ)
Students give up time in their winter or spring break to travel to urban or rural areas in the United States and the Republic of Panama in order to work side-by-side with the poor in Vincentian communities. If interested, please contact campus minister Monica Saltarelli - firstname.lastname@example.org
LIFT Small Christian Communities
Get a lift from LIFT! LIFT stands for Living In Faith Together. It is student organized and peer managed. A small group of students (generally five – 10 students) gather weekly to reflect on Scripture (usually taking the Sunday Mass readings) and to pray, discuss, and share their faith. LIFT allows students to discover their experience of God in light of their daily life by building community, through mutual support and encouragement.
A great way to learn more about the Sacred Scriptures and to improve your prayer life is to become a regular member of a small group faith sharing or Bible study group. Each semester, there are a variety of times, locations, topics, and formats offered to suit most every interest. Students from all faith perspectives are welcome. All one needs is an open mind, a caring heart, and an interest in growing in your own faith tradition. For more information, contact Kristina Schliesman at email@example.com.

Ministry Advisory Board
The Campus Ministry Advisory Board assists the staff in planning and evaluating events. New members are always welcome. Please contact Fr. Kevin Creagh at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in serving on this advisory board.
Our Eucharistic celebrations need music to lift the heart and spirit to be heard and sung well. To truly celebrate our faith, choir members, cantors, and instrumentalists are essential. The Alumni Chapel Choir is open to anyone who likes to sing or can play an instrument. The 11 a.m. Mass features familiar hymns from the Word & Song hymnal, while the 10 p.m. Mass blends traditional liturgy with contemporary praise and worship music. For more information, please contact Kristina Schliesman at email@example.com
