What is a Campus Minister?
The Campus Minister works as a member of a team that provides faith, spiritual and pastoral support to students. The role is project-focused and designed to contribute to the religious life of the school community. The Campus Minister seeks to empower young people to utilise their gifts and talents and to live their faith in a variety of settings including school, parish, wider Church and local community.
Who can do campus ministry?
Campus ministry is predominantly, although not exclusively, a lay ministry. Campus ministers generally have some formal formation in ministry with young people in other contexts (e.g. parish, youth movement, Archdiocesan) or related fields of experience. They bring a great diversity of skills and this diversity is reflected in the individual performance of the role in different schools. For further information on the role, responsibilities and eligibility criteria of Campus Ministers please refer to the Campus Minister Role Description. (See link below)
