The mission of campus ministry at Chaminade University is to raise awareness of our Catholic Marianist traditions among students, staff and faculty by:  building a community of faith and service; forming partnerships with the church and those with whom we share Marianist sponsorship; offering opportunities for prayer, reception of Sacraments, faith development and retreats; committing to build a more just and peaceful society through service; providing spiritual guidance through listening, counseling, and reconciliation where needed or requested; and centering all our efforts in Jesus Christ, the son of Mary, who commanded us to love one another.
