Lourdes Campus Ministry serves the entire University community by calling forth each person’s gifts and talents, regardless of faith tradition. Our Catholic and Sylvania Franciscan traditions and the values of our students, faculty, staff, and administration are at the heart of all we do. 

The interaction of our diverse faith traditions enriches campus life. We aim to help create a community whose faith is alive, informed, and active.

Discover the Franciscan Factor in our Viewbook.

In the spirit of our patron, Francis of Assisi, you will find the Lourdes community in the busyness of everyday life, looking for ways to celebrate and share God’s blessings. It’s our Franciscan Factor.

Strengthen your prayer life and grow in your relationship with God, yourself, and others through:

  • Joining LINK. (Linking Interest, Need, and Knowledge), a student organization that works with Campus Ministry to help plan spiritual, social, and service-oriented activities that link students to the community.
  • Take part in spiritual and social LINKS, including weekly liturgies, Soup & Scripture, retreats, and ice cream socials.
  • Outreach Ministry LINKs that include the Toledo Labre Project and other activities reflect our support of Sylvania Area Family Services, Bethany House, Habitat for Humanity, and various national and local causes.
  • Reading the Campus Ministry LINK, weekly emails that contain current information on all related activities, and following us on Facebook Lourdes University Campus Ministry. Additional reflection resources and material on current social justice concerns are at the Campus Ministry display in the Planetarium Lobby.
Campus Ministry Students

Are you looking for a space to study, relax, pray, and share fellowship?

The San Damiano Campus Ministry House is the hub of the Campus Ministry program. Students and other members of the Lourdes Community can stop by Monday through Friday from 9:30 am to 5:30 pm for fellowship, relaxation, or to change up your study space.

Join us for one of these regularly scheduled events.

  • On Monday evenings (Fall & Spring), starting at 5:00 pm, stop by for Doctor in the House—our drop-in fellowship and tutoring gathering. Dr. Dwayne Beggs and Dr. Peter Sibilio are available for academic help, but the gathering is all about their famous burgers and treats.
  • On Wednesday evenings at 4:00 pm (year-round), be part of the Labre Outreach Project. We gather at the Campus Ministry House to prepare sandwiches, casseroles, and drinks. Then, we head out to two stops in the community, distributing meals and sharing fellowship with some of our more anonymous neighbors.
  • On Thursday evenings (Fall & Spring) at 8:00 pm, join us for a weekly Bible Study. Gather at the Campus Ministry House to share insights and reflections on selected Scripture passages.

Get involved.
