The Anselm Campus Ministry Center is located on the second floor in the west end of the Anselm building. The center is equipped with a full kitchen and comfortable living-room type atmosphere. It serves as a meeting place for various campus ministry events and dinners, as well as a place for students to gather and socialize. All are welcome.
The Campus Ministry Office offers student-directed activities that provide opportunities for community volunteer work, personal and spiritual growth, faith sharing and formation in liturgical ministry. All students are invited and encouraged to participate actively regardless of their religious affiliation.
A number of programs are available for students to volunteer their time and skills on a weekly, monthly and annual basis. These include Alternative Spring Break, Crusaders for Life and Best Buddies. Contact Campus Ministry at (972) 721-5375.
Lively forums on current topics of faith (along with a home-cooked meal) are scheduled on Tuesday evenings throughout the year in the Anselm Campus Ministry Center. Professors from all academic disciplines at the University as well as speakers from around the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex provide food for thought.
