Welcome to Campus Ministry
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 219 to learn what events and activities will interest you during your new semester of study.
Volunteer service offers a means to reach out to others who are vulnerable, and, through exercising presence and reflection and study, discover the importance of becoming socially aware and justice oriented. Can you spare an hour or two each week?
Gospel Choir meets on Monday evenings at 7, retreats for discernment and prayer are offered each semester, a directory for local Mass and Church services is available, Sacramental preparation is encouraged, and a spirit of prayerful support is here for you to enjoy, to be enriched by, as a Trinity ‘sister’.
Watch for weekly events to support your discovery:
We offer a Wednesday Catholic Mass (Chapel in Main), Monday Meditation, Muslim prayer room (477 Main), Monday Gospel Choir, Tuesday Bible Study, and Thursday Lectio Divina, plus weekend worship communities and a list of service opportunities. Campus Ministry offers worship opportunities, interfaith services, service opportunities, and spiritual support.
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.

Trinity Gospel Choir meets on Monday evenings, at 7pm, in the chapel in Main Hall. Students and alumni and members of the local community are welcome to join. If you are not a ‘singer’, then please come and support the Gospel Choir as they perform at semester’s end.
A note: Mr. Cromwell who directs the Trinity Gospel Choir is now in his 10th year, so the Gospel Choir is in its 10th year. Congratulations and may the singing on Mondays bring real beauty-in-sound to God and all who hear, because,”She who sings, prays twice!” Our Christmas Concert will take place on Monday, December 2, in Social Hall at 7pm. Please come!

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 a student’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.
