The mission of Campus Ministry at St. Thomas More College is to serve and bear witness to the Gospel of Jesus Christ by means of:
I. Presence to the College and University,
II. Development of faith community,
III. Celebration of word and sacrament,
IV. Empowerment to service, especially to the poor and marginalized.
Within the College, the team partners with the Newman Centre, STMSU, Development and Peace Just Youth Group, Knights of Columbus, as well as relating to the St. Thomas More Worshipping Community. STM Campus Ministry maintains strong professional connections with the Ukrainian Catholic Campus Ministry at Sheptytsky Institute, Canadian Catholic Campus Ministry (CCCM) and the Canadian Catholic Students' Association (CCSA). Reporting directly to the President of the College, the Campus Ministry Team is also accountable to the Roman Catholic Bishop of Saskatoon for its pastoral activities.
The Campus Ministry team currently consists of Michael MacLean, Madeline Oliver and Fr. André Lalach, working in collaboration with Basilian Father Ron Griffin, and Philomena Ojukwu (Student Assistant).
We continually endeavour to foster healthy faith growth, facilitating programs and events that encourage dialogue and reflection between faith and reason. They offer confidential listening, as well as spiritual and personal guidance to students, faculty, and staff of all backgrounds. Campus Ministry at STM works closely with Campus Ministers from other Christian denominations and faith traditions through the University of Saskatchewan Multi-Faith Chaplain's Association (MFCA).
