Campus Ministry

Care for the Entire Person

Have you heard the term cura personalis? It’s not just another old Latin phrase here at Saint Louis University; it’s an expression that forms the core of how we nurture spiritual life in our community.

  • Our Sunday Student Mass for the 2022-2023 academic year is at 8 p.m. each week in St. Francis Xavier College Church.
  • Students serve the SLU worshiping community as ministers of hospitality, servers, lectors and extraordinary ministers of Holy Communion. Student ministers who have been trained usually participate in the Sunday 4:30 and 8 p.m. Masses in College Church. Fill out this interest form to be contacted about liturgical minister training for SLU Student and University Masses.
  • Registration is now open for the fall 2022 Fresh Look Retreat, an experience for first-year students sponsored by the SLU Department of Campus Ministry. Together, we take a fresh look at who we have been and how we regard gratitude and prayer. We also ponder who God desires us to be as we press forward with life and faith as a college student.  This retreat is offered on Sept. 2-4, or Sept. 16-18 at SLU Manresa Center. On both weekends, the retreat will start at about 5 p.m on Friday and will conclude on Sunday morning. Contact Campus Ministers Christy Hicks (christy.hicks@slu.edu) or Jim Roach (jim.roach@slu.edu) with questions.

  • If you are musically inclined (or wish you were), consider joining our award-winning Mass Choir. SLU's student Mass Choir provides the music for the 4:30 p.m. and 8 p.m. Masses on Sundays at College Church. Our musical selections follow the spirit of the readings for each week with an eclectic mix of traditional hymns, contemporary Christian music, and choral arrangements. We welcome any SLU student (undergraduate, graduate, alumni) who enjoys making music and is open to our church setting to come sing and play with us. Contact Choir Director Sally Iocca or fill out this interest form to have someone contact you with more information about the choir. Check out a sample of some of our songs on the SLU Campus Ministry YouTube Channel.
