Campus Ministries

Alternative Text

The office of Campus Ministries is rooted in the Dominican Charism and the four pillars of study, service, spirituality, and community. With a foundation of Catholic identity, Campus Ministries brings together students and employees in the common search for Truth in the Dominican Way in an accepting and inclusive environment. Campus Ministries sponsors retreats, masses, prayer services, and service experiences both locally and globally.

The office of Campus Ministries is located in Public Square 390. All are welcome to come relax in the campus ministries lounge where we offer friendly hospitality to students and employees. The Sacred Heart Chapel is located in the parking lot between Fitzgerald Hall and the Hagan Nursing Center and is open for all students when the College is in session. The Campus Ministries Team, consisting of two campus ministers, a chaplain, and the coordinator of campus ministries, is always available to meet with students or employees on an individual basis and in a confidential manner. The Campus Ministry Team works collaboratively with students, including the Mission Scholars and HOPE Team, to empower students to expand the influence of Campus Ministries on the Molloy College campus. For further details, call the office at 516.323.3224.
