Campus Ministry

Campus Ministry is open to all DC students regardless of religious background and seeks to meet all students’ spiritual needs.

Sponsored by the Archdiocese of Kansas City in Kansas, our ministry is based in prayer, scripture study and worship, as well as individual care and guidance, advocacy, catechesis, community celebrations, evangelization and social justice activities.

In addition, Donnelly offers Mass on campus several times a week. Mass is a great way to take a peaceful, spiritual break from your classes, assignments and other responsibilities. If you just need a quiet break, stop in for a moment in the Prayer Room/Campus Ministry Room (room 212) — both are always open and stocked with inspiring books.
