    Information about Walk the Labyrinth event for Finals Week Fall 2018


Campus Ministry at Mercy College serves the entire college community. It is rooted in the Roman Catholic tradition, yet is designed to serve all people. Through various prayer services and liturgies, campus ministry desires to help the college community in its spiritual growth.

On the Toledo campus, St. Joseph Chapel, located on the 1st floor of the College, and the campus ministry lounge and meditation room, located on the 5th floor, are open and hospitable places in which all can experience a sense of community, a place for quiet reflection, or a venue for deeper sharing and prayer. On the Youngstown campus, the Chapel at Mercy St. Elizabeth Hospital is open for the College community to visit and pray.

Campus Minister

The campus minister provides opportunities for spiritual growth and through individual direction and can help students discover and deepen their relationship with God. The campus minister can be contacted in person, by phone or by email and welcomes the opportunity for respectful listening and sharing. The six aspects of Campus Ministry as outlined in the 1985 Bishop’s Pastoral Letter, “Empowered by the Spirit,” which is still relevant today, provide the basis for the campus minister’s role.

These are:

  • Forming the Faith Community
  • Appropriating the Faith
  • Forming the Christian Conscience
  • Facilitating Personal Development
  • Educating for Justice
  • Developing Leaders for the Future
