Campus Ministry

All are welcome!

MSMC Campus MinistryCampus Ministry is at the service of all faculty, staff, and students. Our office is here to help support the Mount Saint Mary College community on their spiritual and moral journeys, whether they belong to an official religion or are unaffiliated with a particular mosque, church, synagogue, or temple. The offices are located in Hudson Hall, rooms 106 and 115. All are welcome and encouraged to visit.

Rooted in our rich Catholic tradition and Dominican heritage, we help to build a community of faith through prayer, community, and service. Keeping in mind the motto “Teach me the Truth”, Campus Ministry offers programs that aim to deepen an individual’s relationship with God and others. Examples of these activities include an annual Blessing of the Buildings, bi-annual Blessing of the Minds, a Semester-Long Service Learning Program, the Giving Tree, daily and Sunday Mass, as well as many others. The Sacramental life of the Catholic Church is offered through Mass, the Sacrament of Reconciliation, and an available RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults) Program.

In keeping with our mission to build community, Campus Ministry collaborates with departments across campus and with organizations in the Newburgh area and beyond. In recognition of the Mount’s Dominican heritage, Campus Ministry collaborates with other offices on campus, especially the Catholic and Dominican Institute, in creating opportunities for the community to discover and explore the history and traditions of the Mount and Dominican spirituality.
