All are Welcome

We are committed to educating the whole person and being with students on their exploration at the intersections of faith, justice, and community.  This is at the heart of Seattle University’s Jesuit, Catholic identity!

We provide many opportunities for you to grow spiritually, learn more about yourself, share your gifts and talents, encounter and dialogue across difference, and build community with others. In addition to a fun, educational, and engaging Catholic ministry, there are opportunities for students from all faith or spiritual backgrounds: Christians, Muslims, Jews, Hindus, Buddhists, Atheists, those who identify as spiritual but not religious, and those questioning.

Campus Ministry is committed to hospitality and serving all students. We welcome the experiences, tensions, and gifts of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer persons in the Seattle University Community. We honor our diversity as people made in the image and likeness of God by offering hospitality to all.  Whatever your background or identity, whatever questions you may be exploring in your life; you have a place in Campus Ministry.

We invite you to join us at one of our many programs or to stop by our offices to meet with our staff.  All are welcome!
