Prayer and Study Groups
Programs are offered periodically at our campuses to help students delve deeper into their faith. Bible Study, “Midday Meditation," "Prayer Lunch" and prayer meetings are all opportunities to bring people of different faiths together for spiritual sharing. Look for these and other Campus Ministry programs here on our Web site and advertised on campus. Read More
There are many ways that Marymount College supports and embodies its core value of “Service.” Student service organizations, Alternative Spring Breaks, All-College service days for faculty and staff, and the Office of Service Learning – all of these “encourage our students to seek a more just world and to lead lives of compassionate service to others."

At Marymount California University we encourage all of our students to explore their spiritual side and develop a life of faith and service. You are invited to join with your fellow students and the Campus Ministry team to build a welcoming community that is rooted in our Catholic mission and inspired by the legacy of the Religious of Sacred Heart of Mary.
Campus Ministry provides a place for you to share meaningful friendships with other students, receive mentoring, and participate in various programs and activities that support the development of the whole person. Our weekly celebration of Eucharist gathers for prayer as a campus community as we mark important moments and seasons. We also gather for different prayer experiences that honor a variety of religious traditions. Our retreat program offers the chance to get away and allow time for ourselves, for God and for our community. Regular service opportunities bring us together as we share our gifts with those in our community and work to build a more just society.
Formal and informal conversations about life’s big questions are welcome in Campus Ministry and provide the space to reflect upon all you are learning inside and outside the classroom. We firmly believe in your gifts and we are committed to accompanying you as you discern your life’s callings.
We also invite you to consider sharing your gifts and leadership with our campus community through volunteering in liturgy, leading retreats and service opportunities and facilitating other program offerings.
Campus Ministry values the gifts brought to our university by those of all faith traditions and we seek to learn from one another as we share our Marymount journey. All are welcome!
Please stop by Oceanside 108B, I look forward to meeting you.
