Notre Dame’s Campus Ministry program is one of the largest in the country, so its staff is always preparing events and meetings for students on campus to further their faith.
“Campus Ministry is committed to cultivating the faith of all Notre Dame students,” Tami Schmitz, associate director of student ministry, said in an email. “Campus Ministry ministers faithfully and fervently to all students, regardless of denomination, faith tradition or level of education.”
Some of the programs Campus Ministry sponsors include musical groups and undergraduate ministries. Within the undergraduate ministries, Campus Ministry has a wide variety of options for students already engaged in their faith or interested in exploring the Christian faith further.
“Campus Ministry creates an atmosphere where our students feel cared for, supported and empowered to reach their full potential. We also try to offer a variety of programs and events in an attempt to meet a variety of students wherever they are on their journey of faith,” Schmitz said.
Kayla August, the assistant director of evangelization, oversees several Campus Ministry programs, such as weekly adoration in the chapel; the Catholic Identity Association, which supports Catholic student groups on campus; the Muslim Student Association and the Jewish Student Association.
