Welcome to the Office of Campus Ministry!
In the spirit of St. Francis, who inspired us to live out the Gospel values daily, Campus Ministry seeks to inspire students, faculty, and staff to integrate faith with life through a holistic educational approach to the development of faith, spirituality, and the quest for truth for the good of society (Ex Corde Ecclesiae 30). Inspired by Christian principles, we seek to empower students to live their Christian vocation through the core values of Our Lady of the Lake College: Service, Reverence and Love for all of Life, Joyfulness of Spirit, Humility, and Justice. Students are encouraged to adopt the spirit of St. Francis and participate in the many opportunities to engage in Campus Ministry.
Daily Masses at the Rosary Chapel: Opportunities are available throughout the week for students of all faiths to grow spiritually. Daily masses are held in the Our Lady of the Lake Regional Medical Center Chapel (Rosary Chapel) at 11:30 a.m. Monday-Friday and 8 a.m. Saturday and Sunday. The chapel is located on the first floor of the Medical Center and is open daily from 7:00 a.m. until 6:00 p.m. All students are welcome to attend services and/or visit the chapel for meditation and prayer. Students are encouraged to consult the hospital chaplain regarding religious and ethical problems.
College Reflection Room: The College offers a Reflection Room in the Administration building, 5414 Brittany Drive. Students, alumni, faculty and staff are invited to the Reflection Room during business hours for private time and meditation.
Franciscan Student Fellowship: The Franciscan Student Fellowship (FSF) is a student-run organization that seeks to extend the ministry of Jesus Christ through care, compassion, respect and understanding for all people. The organization meets its goals by conducting ministerial activities, such as devotionals, Bible studies, support groups and community service. The FSF encourages participation from students, faculty and staff, and sponsors a weekly event in the Reflection Room for ten minutes of silent reflection on a shared scripture.
Join the Choir: Do you have talent? The College is looking for new voices to join the choir at our numerous campus events. Contact Karen Goodridge at 768-1774 for more information.
Special College Masses: The College sponsors quarterly College Masses throughout the academic year specifically for students, faculty, staff, alumni and the Franciscan Missionaries of Our Lady. Students of all faiths are encouraged to attend College Masses.
Seasonal events: The Mission Effectiveness Committee organizes events throughout the year to deepen our understanding about the College’s Franciscan heritage and to enhance campus-wide opportunities for worship. The College also sponsors weekly Lenten reflections during the Lenten season in which students, faculty and staff share a cup of soup and a time for meditation and prayer.
