Benedictine Friends

Get to know the women who started The College of St. Scholastica! Opportunities will be offered for social, spiritual and educational events with the sisters throughout the year. Typically we gather as a large group about three times per semester. Students and Sisters will also meet in small groups several times during the year as well for those who are interested. Students who want to get involved should sign up early in the fall. Contact Campus Ministry for more information.

Big Questions Small Group

Want to ponder the big questions of life? You know, questions about life, faith, friendship, relationships, and the future.... Then give this group a try. Groups will usually be made up of students in the same class and gender along with two faculty/staff/sisters. These groups are meant for personal and spiritual growth and facilitated through listening, sharing and responding to others in a small group setting. Groups will meet once a month for about 2 hours, at a time that is convenient for all members. A meal will also be shared during this time. Groups form in the early fall. Contact Campus Ministry for more information.

The Oratory (Prayer Room located in Somers 190E)

The Oratory is a room set aside off Somers Lounge for individual or small group prayer. Anyone looking for a quiet place to pray may stop in The Oratory most times between about 8 am and 10 pm. All are welcome. This room may be reserved for Bible studies and small groups as well. Contact Campus Ministry for more information.

Spiritual Direction

In collaboration with the St. Scholastica Monastery's Center for Spirituality and Enrichment, Campus Ministry is able to offer spiritual direction to current CSS students at no charge. 

Spiritual direction is an opportunity for you to explore your faith/spirituality and to deepen your relationship with God. Spiritual direction is simply a conversation between two people, in which one person consults another, more spiritually experienced person, called a spiritual director, about the ways in which God is breaking into their life.

To request a spiritual director please complete this form. For more information contact Jessica Ellingson, Director of Campus Ministry, at
