|Catechesis For College Students|
Campus ministry begins with the education of our students in the Catholic faith. It also involves ministering to the faculty and staff, engaging the university as an institution, searching for wisdom and truth, and bringing the gospel to the “marketplace of ideas.”
All six aspects of the Pastoral Letter on Campus Ministry, Empowered by the Spirit, mandate catechesis in the university environment. There are many and varied resources that are specific to our needs as educators and evangelizers on campus. The following resources have been used repeatedly by experienced campus ministers.
