Campus Ministry provides a supportive environment where all feel welcome. Events are planned to build our community spirit and sense of belonging.
We invite you to participate in weekly Sunday liturgies, weekly meditations, social justice outreach, special events and much more.
Have a great idea, an uplifting podcast to share, or want to share your talents or gifts? Reach out! We are always eager to build up the community.
You can connect with the Campus Ministry team by email or through Microsoft Teams, and follow @sjucampusmin for programming updates.
Campus Ministry offers a variety of programs aligned with the University’s mission of the formation of leaders for the service of the community and the Church. Whether you are a faith-driven person or not, there is an interesting activity happening in Campus Ministry for you!

We recognize that not all students are able to commit to a full term of leadership; we welcome new ideas and are here to support students who want to offer specific programs for the Campus Ministry community at any point during the year.
We welcome all musicians and singers to join our choir for our 7:00 pm liturgy at any point through the year. The choir practices at 5:30 pm each Sunday before mass.
All are invited to share their gifts during our Sunday liturgies as a lector or server. We welcome new volunteers throughout the year.
A chaplain – put simply – is a spiritual mentor. They can be a member of the clergy, a leader in a religious group, or someone who mentors through faith.
At St. Jerome’s University we are lucky to have Sean Hayes as our chaplain. He is always available to connect, to lend a listening ear, and to provide resources and support.
In the University of Waterloo community there are chaplains representing eleven different faith traditions, providing support to students, faculty, staff, and our community members through spiritual and pastoral care. See the UW Chaplains page for more information.
