Student Ministries


  Ministry Assistants                       


You’ve heard of Resident Assistants (RAs).  We have Ministry Assistants (MAs), too..  MAs provide pastoral support, social outreach opportunities, and programs that engage students in theological reflection, prayer and the celebration of the joys and sorrows of daily life. You’ll find an MA in each residence hall.

One student commented, "Being a Ministry Assistant allows me to grow in my faith, make a positive impact on the community developed in the resident's halls, and serve God through service to residents and members of the South Bend Community."
