University Ministry

 

Marylhurst University Ministry promotes a Catholic framework for competence, leadership and service that honors the longstanding, inclusive ministry in the Pacific Northwest of the Sisters of the Holy Names of Jesus and Mary. It seeks innovative ways to provide spiritual guidance to adult and nontraditional students, whether they are on campus or online, and reach out to spiritual and secular communities alike to encourage healing and peace. Most importantly, University Ministry encourages and helps the Marylhurst community to respect the uniqueness and dignity of each person.
