Campus Ministry

GROW AT THE CLIFF.

We are a Catholic, Franciscan university. That means we value community, care for the environment, peace and service. Not Catholic? Don't worry, we welcome and respect all faiths — if we didn't, we'd be less Catholic ourselves!

We have the chance to help less fortunate people file their taxes through the VITA program, and it's great experience, too.
