Our Mission

Rooted in the Catholic tradition and inspired by the charism and spirituality of the Congregation of Mission (Vincentians), the Office of Campus Ministry serves the religious and spiritual needs of our university community. We are committed to fostering spiritual development and faith formation among all Niagara University students. We welcome students of all faiths and religious traditions, while encouraging Catholic students to deepen their Catholic identity and participate actively in the life of the Church.

Guided by the pillars of community, prayer, and Vincentian service, we seek to cultivate personal spiritual discovery and growth. We do this by providing opportunities to gather and build relationships with other students and community members; encouraging participation in the sacramental and liturgical life of the Church, retreats, and other forms of worship and prayer; and engaging in service locally and globally.

Niagara University promises an education of the whole person. Campus Ministry supports this mission by inviting students on an exciting, introspective journey of discovery, to explore and develop their spirituality and come to a greater understanding of their purpose in the world.

Mass Intentions

An individual may ask a priest to offer a Mass for several reasons: for example, in thanksgiving, for the intentions of another person (such as to pray for recovery from an illness or to celebrate a happy event such as a birthday or special anniversary. Mass intentions may also be offered to pray for the repose of the soul of someone who has died.

The usual offering for a mass intention is $10, but no one is ever turned away!
