Campus Ministry

"Catholic Institutions of higher education and Catholic campus ministry at secular institutions are a great blessing.  They have always served the church well by educating and forming young adult Catholics.  We turn to them now to help us develop creative ways of implementing this plan at parish and diocesan levels."
