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.
Campus Ministry Activities & Programs
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.
Dinner & Discourse
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.
The Church calls all the baptized to a full and active participation in a life of
prayer. Those Catholic students who wish to respond to this call as musicians, lectors,
extraordinary ministers of the Eucharist or hospitality ministers are welcome to be
spiritually and technically trained through the Office of Campus Ministry. Interested
students should contact the Director of Campus Ministry at (972) 721-5168.
The Office of Campus Ministry arranges a variety of retreats throughout the year.
Each fall, a Freshman Retreat is held and the UD Awakening Retreat happens each spring.
Spiritual direction is available year-round.
