Sister Carol Higgins Takes Lead of University Ministry

Excerpt from an article by Cliff Newell in The Lake Oswego Review, October 20, 2011.

As the new director of the campus ministry program, Sister Carol Higgins will continue to build faith-based activity that reflects the university's roots.

"Three years ago, we restarted the campus ministry program," Higgins said. "We held mass, interfaith prayer services or just held times of reflection at which we shared what was important.

"I think we gained more awareness on the campus as a whole that Marylhurst has a religious foundation. Our students see this university as a place where they can get their questions answered."

Higgins already has programs that will build on the ministry's momentum. One is the interfaith justice panels, which will examine such topics as globalization, sustainability, human trafficking, water and health care.

Although Higgins entered the campus ministry with many questions, she found that it is just the work she wants to do.

"I now have a lot of creativity to shape this program to meet the needs of this community. Plus, the people here are wonderful."
