Rooted in our Catholic Intellectual Tradition, St. Ambrose is a welcoming community guided by faith, learning and justice. Through the university's Campus Ministry Department, students can engage in many faith-based activities, no matter their religious denomination.
But even if you aren't Catholic, Ambrose is a great place to come and explore your beliefs. Our inclusiveness and respect for other faiths encourages students to learn more about all belief systems – including their own.
At the beginning of each semester, students can sign up for Campus Ministry-related activities such as participating in Masses as a lector or Eucharistic minister, singing or playing an instrument during service, or belonging to a prayer group.
A number of retreats and events are held each semester as well, including the Busy Student Retreat, which takes place on-campus amidst your regular activities, and SOJOURN, a retreat for new Ambrose students who want to get to know each other and learn how to become more involved in opportunities for spiritual growth and community service.
A Catholic Mass is held every day at various times in Christ the King Chapel.
