Rooted in the rich tradition of the Sisters of Mercy, a person’s faith development is an integral part of education for life at Mount Aloysius College. The Campus Ministry program concerns itself with the spiritual and religious development of students. It also concerns itself with the important task of forming a Christian community among the whole campus family that supports values associated with the rich tradition of Catholicism and other faith traditions.
Staffed by two campus ministers and volunteers, Campus Ministry provides opportunities for worship, pastoral counseling, educational programs, sacramental preparation, retreats, programs of fellowship and outreach to others. Persons of all faiths are welcome to participate in all these opportunities.
Students are encouraged to develop their leadership skills though opportunities to plan, organize and direct various prayer services and liturgies. Students are also welcome to serve as musicians, singers, readers and ministers of hospitality for liturgies and prayer services.
Campus Ministry provides many opportunities to serve. Three service trips are available throughout the year. Service trips have included Young People Who Care in Clearfield County, Katrina Relief in Gulfport, Mississippi, and orphans and deaf children in Jamaica, WI. Other projects include fundraisers for the needy and soliciting donations for local food pantries. Through its auspices, students enjoy membership in the PCCMA (Pennsylvania Catholic Campus Ministry Association) and NCSC (National Catholic Student Coalition).
Our Lady of Mercy Chapel is located in the Chapel Wing adjoining the second floor of the Main Building and is open daily for prayer. All students and staff members are welcome regardless of denomination. Special services are held at Thanksgiving, Christmas, during Lent and on other occasions.
