Campus Ministry

Our focus is to empower DeSales students to mature into the joyful, passionate and optimistic Christians God has created them to be.

Whether it be at daily Mass or informal prayer, at faith-sharing groups, retreats or social justice programs, the gentle spirit and practical teachings of St. Francis DeSales pervade every activity of Campus Ministry, helping students to "Live Jesus" in their daily lives.
