Welcome to Campus Ministry

 

Trinity Washington University welcomes Reverend Stephen Thorne in a new role of Coordinator of Black Catholic Ministry, Culture, and Scholarship.  Originally from Philadelphia, he has served as a pastor, administrator and educator.  He will be teaching a course entitled, African  American Spirituality and assisting with the programs in Campus Ministry.  We welcome  Fr.

Becoming involved in Campus Ministry at Trinity Washington University means discovering your spiritual strengths, nurturing your sense of justice and peace, and sustaining your own goodness in relationship with God’s goodness, and others.  By integrating your academic path with opportunities for prayer, conversation, worship, volunteer service, and even song, you will discover your strength!  We are here for you, and you are invited to visit Campus Ministry in Main Hall 224 (Sr. Ann) and 219 (Fr. Thorne) to learn what events and activities will interest you during your new semester of study.

Want to take your spirituality to a new level?  Join in Bible Study, Lectio Divina (group reflection on Sunday’s Gospel), and Monday Mindfulness.  One-to-one spiritual care is offered during this time of Covid-19.  During exam time, participate in a student-led ‘prayer and popsicle’ refresher and renewal.  Through personal and group reflection, social distancing and wearing masks for protection, we can find ways to support one another in spiritual ways.

Campus ministry supports student volunteering in DC.  Check in this Fall to access opportunities for volunteering.  Tutoring, visiting our revered elders, feeding the hungry, planting vegetables for food, stacking food items, serving the sick: these are some of our volunteer opportunities.

Gospel Choir meets on Monday evenings at 7.  A directory for local Mass and Church services is available, Sacramental preparation is encouraged, and a spirit of prayerful support are all here for you, as a Trinity ‘sister’.

Watch for weekly events to support your discovery:

We offer a Wednesday Catholic Mass (Chapel in Main) at 12:10, and the chapel is open throughout the day, so stop in when you feel the desire for personal prayer.  The Muslim prayer room (477 Main), Tuesday Bible Study (Main Hall chapel at 5pm), Thursday gospel reflection (Main Hall chapel at 3pm) and a Saturday volunteer opportunity are available for you.  Campus Ministry supports worship opportunities, social justice awareness, with emphasis on Catholic Social Teachings, Notre Dame Hallmarks, climate awareness and the dignity of human life in your discovery of your own strengths.

During the emergency situation with Coronavirus, we may not always be able to help you in-person, however, the Campus Ministry and the Student Affairs team can still help you virtually! If you have an urgent question or issue, please e-mail Campus Ministry and someone will assist you as soon as possible.
