For Pastoral Conversations

University Ministry staff members are available for individual conversations — these can be serious, light or anything in between. Appointments can be set up ahead of time by contacting a university minister, but drop-ins are always welcome.

University ministers can assist you with transitions, evolving relationships and other life issues. They also foster prayer and faith development and discernment about your life direction, career or vocation.

For Confession

Reconciliation will be offered periodically throughout the year in St. Ignatius Chapel. Or contact the Jesuit community below:
