“Being a member of Brescia Campus Ministry is truly a life changing experience. We embrace students, faculty, staff, and the greater community with rich dialect bringing the gospel in word and deed. Campus Ministry is a place of faith formation, servant leadership, global mission, mercy and justice. It is a community where friendships are formed, stories are shared, and where God’s love is ever present amidst our lives.”

“Campus Ministry helped me integrate into Brescia and made my transition easier through programming, events, and the warm welcome I received. I especially appreciate the openness of all faiths and all people. Campus Ministry gives me the opportunity to express myself and relieves some of the stress I have related to school work. I look forward to Spirituali-Tea every Wednesday to gather with Brescia's community and reflect on the recent events in my life. It is very enriching to me.”

“Thanks to Campus Ministry I’ve experienced a truly integrated and thorough educational experience at Brescia; both as a student with professional goals, and as a whole person. Spaces like the Sophia Mature Student meetings, Spirituali-tea, and community events helped me meet sensible and responsive people, each with different origins, goals, paths and stories, who were ready to listen and to share.”

“I have felt deeply drawn to Campus Ministry; it is the connection of our spirits in true joy and hope that brings me here— to share, learn and grow with the wonderful women of Brescia Campus Ministry. Our visit with the Ursuline Sisters in summer of 2019 cemented this wholeness; communing with each other and encouraging us to share and celebrate our diversity. Spirituali-Tea continues to strengthen my identity.”
