Let no one have contempt for your youth, but set an example for those who believe,
in speech, conduct, love, faith, and purity. 1 Timothy 4:12
Mission Statement: As young adults in Catholic Campus Ministry
at R-MC, we are appropriating the Catholic faith tradition by gathering people of
goodwill together in a tolerant and welcoming Catholic community on campus that
proclaims the Gospel and provides opportunities for spiritual growth, service and
active involvement in the community and Church.

Catholic Campus Ministry at R-MC welcomes all members of the R-MC community and
provides opportunities to:
• form a vibrant, active faith community
• learn more about the Catholic faith

As indicated above, CCM follows the aspects of campus ministry as set out by the
United States Conference of Catholic Bishops in their pastoral letter, Empowered
by the Spirit (1985).
Catholic Campus Ministry works with the R-MC Office of the Chaplain and is a member
of the R-MC Campus Ministries Council.
Catholic Campus Ministry at R-MC is also engaged in Diocesan programs for young
adults and college students, including:
Empowering Catholic Campus Leaders - This weekend workshop allows Catholic
student leaders from across the Diocese of Richmond to gather and reflect on the
aspects of Catholic Campus Ministry as set forth in Empowered by the Spirit.
The attitudes and approaches cultivated here will be beneficial to any Catholic
college student who serves in any type of leadership role. Applications for the
workshop, which is held in the fall, are available from the Catholic Campus Minister.
Encounter with Christ Catholic College Student Retreat - Lead by Catholic
college students and campus ministers from across the Diocese, this four-day retreat
experience allows college students to step back from their busy lives and reflect
on what's really important - their relationship with God and the community. The
retreat consists of talks, small group discussion, prayer, reflection, as well as
time to get to know fellow retreat participants. Applications for the retreat, which
is held three times in the spring, are available from the Catholic Campus Minister.
