Interfaith Leadership Focus of SHU Campus Ministry

While Siena Heights may be a Catholic university, not all students who attend are rooted in the Catholic faith. This is not a barrier for those who want to join Campus Ministry, however, where interfaith leadership is encouraged and talked about regularly.

While not everyone at Siena Heights is involved in Campus Ministry, Campus Ministry is involved with everyone at Siena Heights University. Chances are you have met the people in charge, and you may not even know it. Sister Mary Jones is the director of Mission and Ministry, with an office located in The Hub. Thomas “Push” Puszczewicz is a campus minister and Kateri Golbiw is an associate campus minister, both with offices in the Campus Ministry Lounge in Archangelus Hall.

Campus Ministry meets on the second and fourth Mondays of every month, but their door is always open if students need a place to chat or hang out. With air conditioning, a TV with many streaming services and a large study table, it is a place where all are made to feel welcome.

This year, Campus Ministry meetings are focusing on interfaith leadership through the Interfaith Youth Core, which is part of the Interfaith Leadership Institute. Those who are interested in joining, or even just seeing what it is about, come to the next meeting on Oct. 12 and see if it is a good fit..

A core value of Campus Ministry is service, which is done through service projects. One project of service that is coming up soon is Sister Carmie Clean-up Day on Oct. 4. If this date does not work, more service opportunities will be available throughout the year, and more information can be found on the Campus Ministry website.

Aside from meetings and service, Mass is offered on Sundays in the St. Dominic Chapel during the academic year. All are invited and encouraged to attend.

For those who are interested, more information can be found on the Campus Ministry website.
