Saint Michael’s College was founded by the Society of St. Edmund. The core Edmundite values of social justice, education, spiritual renewal and ministry are expressed throughout the college, but importantly through our Campus Ministry.

As a Roman Catholic college, we’re committed to help students, staff, and faculty reflect on and celebrate the spiritual and religious dimensions of their lives. We welcome all students who want to explore how thinking and talking about God, values, responsibility to others, the nature of life and the question of a soul can be an important part of education and personal development.

From retreats and spiritual counseling to VITA peer ministers and M.O.V.E. volunteer opportunities to programming through the Edmundite Center for Peace and Justice, we offer many ways for students to explore their spiritual beliefs and serve the community. Saint Anne’s Shrine in Isle La Motte serves as our satellite campus for retreats.

Our Mission

Edmundite Campus Ministry Mission Statement

The mission of Edmundite Campus Ministry at Saint Michael’s College is to share the Good News of the Gospel with the College community by facilitating encounter with Jesus Christ. We do this through the celebration of the Church’s Liturgy, in programs promoting knowledge of the Catholic faith, by developing ecumenical and interreligious relationships, and providing retreats and other opportunities for personal spiritual growth.

The Catholic and Edmundite tradition upon which the College was founded is grounded in the conviction that all women and men are created in the image and likeness of God providing a special dignity unique to each person. Such dignity requires human life to be respected in all of its stages recognizing that we are all children of God.

Therefore, in its pursuit of furthering the Reign of God, the Edmundite Campus Ministry staff seeks to interact with and support every member of the College community in their search for Truth, contributing to the “enhancement of the human person and to the advancement of human culture in light of the Catholic faith.”

Mass Schedule

With the latest recommendations of the CDC in fighting COVID-19, we are suspending all liturgical celebrations in the College Chapel immediately until further notice. All Daily Masses and Sunday Masses are suspended. You can celebrate Mass remotely via the Society of Saint Edmund’s YouTube Channel.

Let us continue to pray for those who are suffering extreme hardship, for those who are ill and for those who died as a result of this illness.
