Campus ministry at Carlow University

Nurture your Spirit as you grow in wisdom

The Office of Campus Ministry, one of the three offices within the Center for Mercy Heritage and Service, serves the pastoral and spiritual needs of the University community and provides opportunities for service, reflection, prayer, and worship.  In the Catholic Mercy tradition of our founders, we welcome everyone and strive to meet the needs of those from all faith traditions in ways which both support and reflect the Core Values of the University.

  • Prayer and worship opportunities in the Catholic tradition, as well as interdenominational and interfaith services
