"Heart for Mercy - Strength of Faith"
Welcome to GCU Campus Ministry!
The role of Campus Ministry at Georgian Court University is to support the spiritual growth of all members of the university community. Our vision of Campus Ministry calls us to:
- Gather a vibrant community for worship, prayer and reflection.
- Celebrate the Catholic Christian faith of our sponsors, the Sisters of Mercy.
- Cultivate faith-filled leaders who can have a positive impact on our world.
- Animate the GCU community for compassionate service and advocacy for justice.
Campus Ministry is housed in the Gatekeeper's Lodge, just inside the 7th Street Gate - across from the mansion. We hope you'll stop by for a visit.
