Welcome to Campus Ministry
Campus Ministry seeks to assist students as they discover their spiritual strengths while at Trinity. Encouraging students to worship in their faith community, and to participate in volunteer service opportunities, Campus Ministry supports the process of discovering oneself before God and within this community of faith.
Volunteer service offers a means to reach out to others who are vulnerable, and, through reflection and study, to discover the importance of becoming socially aware and justice oriented.
Visit Campus Ministry on the 2nd floor of Main Hall to find out how you can enhance your Trinity experience through active participation in faith and service opportunities!
Watch for weekly events to support your discovery:
Wednesday Catholic Mass (Chapel in Main), Muslim prayer room (477 Main), Monday Gospel Choir, Tuesday Bible Study, Meditation and Lectio Divina, plus weekend worship communities and a list of service opportunities. Campus Ministry offers worship opportunities, interfaith services, service opportunities, and spiritual support.
Summer 2019 Cunneen Fellows
Campus Ministry is happy to announce our 2019 Sr. Seton Cunneen Fellows who are beginning the summer serving the DC community. Rosa Elena Prieto Nieves, a Junior, majoring in Nursing, will serve at Mary’s House in Brookland, and Juana Ortiz Ayala, a Senior, majoring in Nursing will work at St. Ann’s Center for Children, Youth and Families in Hyattsville, MD. Daniela (Dany) Vargas, a Senior, and Health Services major, will serve at CASA in DC.Each Cunneen Fellow looks forward to working 10 weeks, M-F, beginning May 28 as a way of learning about the community and ‘making a difference’ at their sites, meeting together on Fridays for reflection and preparing a statement of her learning-service experience. Looking forward to hearing from them in the fall, we wish each Cunneen Fellow a blessed and purposeful summer, meeting new colleagues and helping families in need.
Trinity Gospel Choir sang their Spring Concert on Monday, April 8, in Social Hall to an appreciative crowd. The audience included 9 Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur and the concert honored the memory of St. Julie Billiart, the foundress of the SNDdeN, on the 50th anniversary of her canonization. The Trinity Gospel Choir sang beautifully and we look forward to hearing them sing again in the Fall!
Our mission advances the spiritual values of the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur, founders of Trinity, who believe that education and spirituality transform lives. We strive to model diversity, interdependence, solidarity, and inclusiveness, reaching across racial, ethnic, and religious lines.

Community Service & Social Justice
“During my time at Little Sisters of the Poor I observed: Tight Knit Community, Organization, Routine, Caring Staff… I helped with dinner service, attended mass with the residents, created daily calendars, helped transport residents to units and lead in evening activities.” These words describe student Lindsay Washington’s experience in volunteering in a local residence for DC elders. Serving the poor and vulnerable, Trinity Washington University students add their strengths and energies to various sites throughout the District. Whether reading with young ones, visiting with elders, serving breakfast to the homeless poor, or supper at Christ House, students are getting involved in community service, thus learning about social justice. Campus ministry offers our volunteers direction towards connecting with the service of their choice early in the semester.
