Commitment to the Students

We are committed to hospitality and serving all students. 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. 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.
