Faith Traditions at SLU

In the hope of nurturing the spirituality of all Saint Louis University students, campus ministry works with religious leaders and ministers of different faiths around the St. Louis area. 

Affiliate ministers are an integral part of the life of the University and work together with campus ministry to provide opportunities for spiritual, emotional and moral development for all of our SLU students. They sign a covenant with the University and are able to host meetings and meet with students on campus. Feel free to contact any of our affiliates directly.

2022-2023 Information Request Form

As we welcome new and returning Billikens to campus, we invite students to complete this form to help you make contact with ministries from your particular religious tradition.
